  1. Nate says:

    Pass by there everyday and it’s just up the road from my house in Lanesville. Boat sits on the Natti’s old property just across from the farm on Washington Street. Also between Canney and Butman quarries. Used to swim and fish there when I was a kid.

    Neat old boat.


  2. It’s on Washington Street, after the fork with Langsford in Lanesville. Just past the Evangelical church, tucked into the trees on the right. Is that accurate enough? I run past their every other day. :)

    The cove in Lanesville?

  4. dean horne says:

WhereZat Winner!….Almost!

Swimdad has identified all but one of the 12 photos in this week’s game. Can anyone help him out? Little by little he’s gotten each one, but this one’s stumping him. He’s about to give up. Thanks for your help!!!

Here are his responses-

  1. swimdad says:

    City hall skyline, Magnolia, Little River, Annisquam Light House, Niles Beach, Magnolia Road Pic, Thai House Good Harbor Beach, Unitarian Church, Sail boat Plum Cove, Man at the Wheel Blvd., Paint Factory and Thatchers Island Twin Lights

  3. Sharon says:

    Swindad- very close, but not quite. Keep trying!

  4. swimdad says:

    Change the church to the Trinity Congregational.

  5. Sharon says:

    3,5, and 6 aren’t right yet, and the first guess on the church was correct, Swimdad. Keep going!

    • swimdad says:

      The only place that #6 could be to me is Niles Pond. 3 and 5 I am totally stumped on. Not bad though for only being in Gloucester for 3 days out of the last 24 years! #5 Harbor Side of Rocky Neck by the old Rockaway Hotel and #3 no eye deer. I give up.

  6. Sharon says:

    Good, you’ve gotten #5 and #6. Now a hint for #3. It’s a different view of one that you’ve already identified. You’re doin’ great!!

WhereZat Winner!

justin demetri says: “civil war memorial in riverdale, by captain hooks” and he’s right! Swimdad did a great job of trying to figure it out, though. I wonder if Justin or anyone else has  information about the symbols on the structure.

See you next Monday! Congratulations, Justin! See Joey for your t-shirt. And as always, thanks for playing!

This week’s WhereZat? has another T-shirt PRIZE!

Last week Matt Ayer was the first person to pinpoint the location as the Central Grammar Apartments The 1940 clue  was the year of last graduating class from what was the old high school. (I only know because my father graduated that year.) Congratulations, Matt and all the others who got the answer! Matt, you can get your t-shirt down at Joey’s dock.

How about this snippit? Where is it? One clue- It’s totally out in the open. You don’t have to climb the City Hall steps, walk through the woods, or swim out to the island. Good luck and thanks for playing!!


WhereZat? Clues! With a T Shirt Prize

Nothing like fall in New England, so here’s some colorful foliage on a building somewhere on Cape Ann. Can you figure out the location? Good luck and thanks for playing!    —Sharon

Bob Ryan from Ryan and Wood has provided an XL Ryan and Wood Distillers T Shirt as a prize.

Update on Tuesday morning:

Hmmm….nobody has guessed at all yet. Ok, here are some clues-

-The date 1940 has significance as an end of sorts.

-It’s a converted building from its original use

-It’s not downtown, but close.

-It’s not a private home or office building

WhereZat? Winner!

Micah Dean identified the common thread of the photos from yesterday’s contest as scenes from along Washington St. On Sunday I took pictures starting at the corner by the Blackburn and continued to the Rockport town line. It took a few hours, and I saw more than I had ever noticed in the past. Very cool!

Spearze identified the scenes in his response:  “the first..blessed mother is at my former Aunt Vinnce house on Washington st across from Blackburn…second is Sclafani bakery. next is Ed mini mart. scroo kitchen,riverdale mills, bay view cemetry, plum cove….all in washington st.” Thanks, Eric!

And Congratulations, Micah!! You can pick up your t-shirt at Joey’s.

Here’s a slideshow of all the shots from my Washington St. trek- And yes, I know- the last few photos were taken in Folly Cove! 

WhereZat? Winner!

      • It is a close up of the wall of the house, when you stand at Cressey’s Beach and look to your right. John thought the wall was a dam. It is the first house on Western Avenue on the water side. Does that help!
