Old Cessey’s Beach Postcard

Joey     Here is a scan of an old postcard of Cressey’s beach probobly from the 50″s? We lived just over the hill on Western Ave & trecked to the beach every week day ( weather permiting) with all the Moms & kids spending the day.

I thought you would enjoy seeing it. I was sad to see that our dragon is gone.

Cheers & Happy Summer.

If you are ever in Asheville, come by the shop & say hello. Shop name is Earth Guild.

  • I love seeing the old postcard of the beach! My dad John Moore taught many children and adults how to swim along side Bernie Pratt! My dad is still alive at 88 living at the Clyde E. Lassen Veteran’s State Nursing Home in Saint Augustine Florida. He misses Gloucester tremendously and would love to get back here. The water and his children are everything to him! Thank you for sharing~!


  • Blair,

    I was probably there with you. Every day, my little pack of friends would head down and be joined later by the moms from Stage Fort Avenue. They would have peanut butter and apple butter sandwiches for lunch. By Labor Day we would look like Tahitians. I also don’t see the raft we used to swim out to. Great memories!
