Gorton-Pew Salt Cod Box

Here is another relic from Gloucester Fishing Industry Past,  An Old Gorton-Pew Salt Cod Wood Box.  I wonder if this box which now resides at Ron Gilson’s house ever spent time at our dock which was part of the Gorton-Pew Fisheries before it was Captain Joe and Sons property.  Part II of my interview with Ron Gilson from his house comes at 8:00AM today.

  1. My Gloucester mother was always thrilled to see the Gordon ~ Pew Salt box appear in our little town grocery store of Deale, Maryland! We knew cod fish cakes, homemade baked beans and Boston Brown Bread would be on the table Saturday night! I have one of the small boxes ~ I think I did get it from Fred Bodin.
