Dogtown, circa 1930 Alice M. Curtis/©Fredrik D. Bodin
When Gloucester property owner Roger Babson hired unemployed Cape Ann stonecutters during the Great Depression in the early 1930s, he left us with carvings on 24 boulders in Dogtown. Scattered across 3,600 now densely forested acres, they inspire to this day, and I post this one for this year’s high school and college graduates, as well as for the rest of us.
