Baby, It’s Cold Outside!

Gloucester Harbor, circa 1900

This 5×7 inch glass negative was part of a panorama, that swept to the right to include Downtown and the Fort. At the time, horse–drawn wagons would transport fishermen to the ships and fish back to market. In my 33 years here, I saw the harbor frozen once. Being a foolish young man, I walked from the Old Yacht Club on Rocky Neck about 1/4 of the way out to Ten Pound Island. I turned around and creeped back. Lesson learned.
