I found this postcard at a little shop in Beverly Farms. The Community Heritage Map, published in 1889, shows the trestle, but not a later map from the 1930’s. I wonder what it was used to transport–people, granite, fish? On the antique map, the trestle is labeled: Gloucester Street Railway on Trestle. It appears as though the trestle ran through what is now the Good Harbor Beach parking lot.
