A great way to recognize and support local artists and the Magnolia Historical Society.
Thanks to FOB David Simmons for submitting the How to Recognize Artists of Paintings, Magnolia Historical Society for hosting and to Thom Falzarano for organizing the show.
It must be warm being in the sun and between the window and the shade. As is said sometimes, these shots were “offense by accident”, I saw this guy out of the corner of my eye driving through Magnolia. Turned around and he waited for me…

The Patio holds a long lasting memory for me. My Dad purchased the Oceanside Hotel in 1931 and we spent the summers there for the next 14 years. Although the hotel had a fine dining room with great menus. it was not uncommon for guests and Dad, Mom, and I to visit the Patio. The shops around it were popular and shoppers would take time out from those visits to dine there.
In 2002 I traveled to Magnolia from my home here in Florida to make a long-sought tour of the many attractions. The most memorable moments were enjoying lunch with a boyhood friend, Billy Melanson, at the Patio. Billy has since passed on, but that visit with him at the Patio will emain in my memory. We grew up in our early years totally enjoying Magnolia and its many attractions, including the Patio.

From the (Martha’s) Vinyard Gazette, circa 1951: ” John Sweek of Queen’s, NYC, secretary to a magistrate in his home city, is shown at left with his companions, Robert Collinson from Provincetown and John Kohr of Magnolia, with three tuna caught on rod and reel near the Truro shore in Provincetown Harbor. The fishermen had their best luck with blue atom plugs and squid as bait.” These are definitely surf casting fishermen. Just look at the bare feet, rolled up trousers, and 4 wheel drive Jeep.
I met John Kohr and his wife Esther (1914–2007) while she and I worked at Endicott College in Beverly. The was something about her that was vaguely aristocratic, but in an old fashioned gracious American way. I now know that she grew up in Provincetown and Truro. In fact, her ship captain uncle sailed in the China Trade, and another ancestor commanded a ship for the Massachusetts Bay Colony, and built the oldest still standing house in Truro. Previous ancestors came here on the Mayflower and established Truro. Husband John Kohr (1911–1999) was a graduate of MIT and invented an amazing product while he worked for Gorton’s: The Fish Stick!
