Cool Find? At Least I Think So

I am new to the area and love finding cool antiques with the area I live printed on them. When I lived in Brooklyn , it was seltzer bottles. I picked this up on ebay for under 20 bucks with shipping. I don’t stroll into many antique stores so I don’t know if these are in the $2 bin. I loved finding out more about the mail order Frank E. Davis Fish Company, the man behind it and their building at 58 Central Warf. Anyone know anything more about these boxes? rare? Feel free to share here about the company. I wonder where the original hut is.

  1. Frank E. Davis fish company was indeed on I4/C2. The building was heavy concrete and the Federal Bulldozer had a terrible time tearing it down for urban renewal.

  2. I remember Davis Brothers mackeral canning plant very well, it was located in what is now the Gloucester House. They shipped canned mackeral all over, at the time it was a good breakfast food.

  3. Search GoodMormimg Gloucester for other postings on Davis, Davis Bros., etc. There were several accounts. I remember the work whistle blowing when it was time to call additional help in to process the mackeral. My dad worked there.
