Looking over Gloucester harbor from East Gloucester Roughly 1980

You can see the old buildings still standing at the East Gloucester Marine Railways on Rocky Neck. Right around this time that old wooden building upstairs was filled with stacks and stacks of Playboy, Penthouse and Hustler magazines.

  1. Jackie, Around the time you took this shot I was walking around the railways looking for whatever caught my eye. It had been a really cold winter and on the window sill of the smaller shack I found a mummified cat! Poor thing froze to death and must have been there for years. It could have been in an Egyptian tomb but it was at the railways overlooking the harbor… perfectly preserved. cheers, henry

  2. When I took this shot I didn’t realize these buildings had such a history. I guess I shouldn’t be surprised. There is probably still more. Thanks for your comments. Jacki
