Tag Archives: Gloucester Firefighters



Nine years ago today, my dad, Ed “Pee Wee” Lowe, passed away. He was a Gloucester firefighter when all the wharf fires and huge hotel fires happened. He was small, yet feisty.  He had a love/hate relationship with the Red Sox, collected everything, owned the Hesperus Bottle Shop in Magnolia, and beat me in every single pingpong game we ever played.  The old firemen remember him. One cool guy. This was one of his favorite prints. Sure do miss him.   —-Sharon

Gloucester House Explosion

Would you just look at the vinyl siding peeled away from the next door neighbor’s house?  I’m guessing we’re lucky more people weren’t injured.
