Tag Archives: Gloucester Waterfront
Entering tags on each photo I upload to flickr is sometimes a painstaking process but when you think about the sheer number of photos taken (say 100,000 or more) there would be absolutely no way to ever locate a particular photo without going through all 100,000 photos unless you have each one tagged with an identifying name.
It is through this tagging system that I can locate and isolate certain photos. It may be painstaking but the archive of photos from Gloucester and of my family that I can access with a few clicks of the keyboard are pretty remarkable.

No trees, no island, No Steve Conolly Seafoods/John B. wright building but you can see the windows in the current Marine Resources building in the background haven’t changed.
Much thanks to Frank Ciolino who brought down a bunch of old photos of Gloucester from roughly 1980.
Maybe someone could identify the building that is to the left of Captain’s Courageous in the photo. I’m guessing it was the old Gloucester Grocery but I’m not sure. There is an alleyway that provides public access there now. In the post above this one, the Lat 43 sign is located on the left corner of the Captain Courageous building in this photo.
The Fisherman’s Wharf Building has been replaced after a fire a few years back with a corrugated steel building.
