Have you seen the custom sign designed for the Gloucester Writers Center on East Main Street? I sent a picture of the drive by view to Henry Ferrini. He sent back “an interior shot of the sign with an effigy of Vincent working at his typewriter” looking out their new-ish (2014) window thanks to another helpful grant of the Community Preservation Act.
The sign was made by Cheryl’s Signs in Gloucester and installed last fall. Ferrini added: “William Taylor who is on the board of the Gloucester Writers Center should get all the kudos. He came up with the idea and executed it.” Look out the window and listen: Henry plays a part in the captivating restoration of classical radio WCVA-FM www.wcva.com. Turn it on.
This week: poets Jay Featherstone reading with Carol Seitchik at the Gloucester Writers’ Center, Wed April 6, 7:30 pm.
I was up north this weekend where they had very little snow, and we missed the beautiful big snowflakes yesterday morning. Loved seeing all the big snowflake photos from everyone on FB. Today I’m sharing a photo I took of last week’s snow fall from the Gazebo at Stage Fort Park looking out towards the harbor….let’s hope it’s all behind us after today! Hope everyone has a marvelous Monday!
I do a lot of shopping on eBay. Meaning that, while I don’t really shop a lot, when I do, it is often on eBay. I stumbled upon a great “vintage” post card of Old Garden Beach and ordered it…thinking that it’d be fun to frame it next to one of my own photos of the quaint little beach at the end of our street. My boys clocked some serious hours at OGB until this past summer when the lure of the bigger beaches came calling. I loved the idea of owning a little freeze-framed moment of how the beach looked years ago…with different little families dotting the sand years before mine came along. Warm fuzzies.
So, the post card has been tucked into a glass cabinet in our living room since arriving in the mail and it wasn’t until yesterday that I really looked at it. Now I’m trying to find out just how “vintage” it is. The people are actually kind of hard to see….and while they look like decades gone by….and while the post card itself is black and white…the houses along the beach wall and street up above don’t look much different than they do today.
The back of the post card simply says, “Published by Rockport Photo Bureau” and “Post Cards of Quality: The Albertype Company, Brooklyn N.Y.
I’ll have to do some research.
