George Krewson Talks About Navy Ships In Gloucester Harbor in the 1940s

Hi Joey!  The Eurodam in Gloucester reminds me of the 1940’s when the Navy would have some pretty large ships stop in the harbor and outside, depending on the size.  My Dad, owner of the Oceanside at Magnolia, would invite the officers over for dinners. 

The guests got to meet them and were glad they could thank them personally for their service.   All windows in the hotel were required to be blacked out at night so as not to provide a background of light for lurking German subs, anxious to sink American ships.
