The Grand Hotels of Gloucester

Wonderful post by Gordon Harris about the grand hotels of Gloucester and Cape Ann cica 1905. He has posted pages from an early 20th century guidebook, The Summer Hotel Guide, which illustrates and describes the grandest hotels of the day. Of the hotels Gordon has featured in his post, it appears the only hotel still standing is the Brynmere in Annisquam. Read his post here on Stories from Ipswich and the North Shore.

Does anyone know the name and/or have recollections of the hotel that was on Witham Street, adjacent to the Good Harbor Beach Inn?summerhotelguide00glou_0010
