Todays question is when was the Gloucester YMCA built? 1970? The second image clearly shows its construction.

The Building Center – Anniversary

Posted 12/26/14 by Eoin Vincent and filed under:

Nick Barletta posted to Facebook as short story about Mr. Francis Bruni, the owner of the Building Center and the Pigeon Cove Turnpike.
It reminded me that I found these images from the The Building Center – Anniversary in Ken’s collection as he did the majority of the advertising for the Building Center.

I can only recognize one person and that is Walther Johnson back. Anyone recognize anyone else?

A Snowy Rockport Past

Posted 12/25/14 by Eoin Vincent and filed under:

A few images of a Rockport past, were there seems to be a lot of snow on the ground. These were taken from Kodak glass-mounted slides, which dates after 1940. They are pre-1978. Maybe late 1960?

Merry Christmas from Sandy :)

Ken, was the type of person, days before Christmas, would go up to you and say do you want to open one of your gifts? As a kid what would we say. YES! On Christmas day, there was always fewer gifts than expected! Love you Papa.

Ken and Elizabeth with Sandy…
