Many thanks to Mary Tucker McLoud for sending a copy of the book from which these photos originally appeared. The book is titled Storming Ashore and was published by the Gloucester Daily Times after the October 30th, 1991 no-name storm. The focus of this batch of photos is to show the extensive property damage to homes along the Atlantic side of Cape Ann.

These stunning photos of Atlantic Road utterly demolished by storm damage, taken in 1991, were sent to us by GMG FOB Mary McLoud Tucker. Although she resides in Annapolis, she has deep roots in Gloucester. The photos are from a booklet published by the Gloucester Daily Times. Many, many thanks to Mary for taking the time to send these very graphic images.
Set to music by Peter Dayton, “Perfect Wave” is a compilation of clips from the day after blizzard Jonas, filmed along the Back Shore and at Good Harbor Beach. I only needed a few shots of B-roll for several projects but the light was so beautiful I stayed and stayed. Mesmerizing, yet terrifying to imagine being on the sea in a boat, the waves were spectacular from every vantage point along Atlantic Road. As a friend said, it was a photographer’s dream that afternoon. I’d love to make another short to Peter’s fantastic surfing song, set in Gloucester at Good Harbor Beach, but during the summertime.
So many thanks to my friend Peter for allowing use of “Perfect Wave.” I heard the song on his website recently. Boston rockers will surely remember Peter from La Peste. Peter is also a phenomenal painter and you can see some of his images of minimalist surfboard inspired paintings and collaged flower paintings on his website here: Peter Dayton
