Mayor Kirk Submits-
We love Father Matthew’s photos so much. Thought you might like the view from the other side of the camera.
The photo is the property of David B. Cox of (Main Street Arts and Antiques).
This photo may also have appeared in the National Geographic Magazine (July 1953)
What interests me most of this mural (in a stairwell at St. Ann’s Church) is not the currently-out-of-fashion but historically correct liturgical garb of the presiding prelate (although, as a priest, I find it interesting), but rather the skyline on the shore. I wonder exactly what view of Gloucester this is supposed to represent? It certainly doesn’t match the current skyline, but obviously things have changed over the decades. The other paintings show that the artist paid attention to detail, so I don’t think he just made it up.
