Unopened 1959 Gloucester senior class photo of a person named Michael Howard.

Hi Joey,

A couple of years ago my wife and I bought a house on Riverview Road. One day while I was up in the attic putting down new insulation I found a package wrapped in what looked like a brown paper bag. I thought I found a bag of Cash!! Unfortunately it wasn’t.. It was however an unopened 1959 Gloucester senior class photo of a person named Michael Howard. After doing a little research, I found out that it was the son of the original builders of the house. I guess he’d be in his mid 70’s now and if he is still around, we’d love to try to give it back to him. We were wondering if there was anything you could do with Good Morning Gloucester to help us see if Michael or the family are still in Gloucester?

What if Edward Hopper couldn’t take the train? MBTA train closure mitigation forum June 5 City Hall Gloucester

MBTA Mitigation Public Forum June 5 at 6:30pm in Gloucester City Hall-Kyrouz 2nd floor

landscape with bridge watercolor whitney

One of the most celebrated and beloved American artists of the twentieth century, Edward Hopper, frequently traveled by public rail from New York to Gloucester. Usually it’s fairly simple to experience Gloucester as Hopper and other notables did–by train and on foot. Hopper walked¬†to lodgings just a short jaunt from the train station in downtown Gloucester and to the many¬†sites he sketched and painted. The result was more than 110 works of art, including views of the Annisquam River Bridge to Cape Ann, the boarding house in downtown where he stayed, the railroad gates, and numerous other subjects still visible.

Today, the MBTA route that Hopper took not only serves weekday commuters, but brings visitors to this historic port. Trains connect New England history, the arts, and natural beauty. Summer or winter, trains make it easy to reach a beach, historical site, or favorite restaurant, to get out of the bustle and enjoy lingering in our coastal towns. They offer a real allure, crossing some of the most incredibly scenic vistas of our special New England landscape, and seasonally charming riders.

There’s no question that planned closures in the busiest of seasons will have negative impact for commuters and visitors. Desperate infrastructure needs will regrettably impede long lasting economic developments tied to Massachusetts’ cultural assets, out door recreation opportunities, and other attractions. The necessary closures do offer an opportunity to think about how to increase MBTA ridership including promoting New England’s historical, artistic and natural riches–MBTA as “Massachusetts’ green go-Between for the Train and Arts scene.”
