Town of Rockport Town Meeting

A Rockport town meeting sometime between 1948 and 1963. Though to be 1959 in  Community School gym, the possible vote was for the new high school.  Note: there are 48 stars on the flag and the 49 star flag wasn’t issued until July 1959.

This features Harry Mills, long time  president of the Granite Savings Bank.

Special thanks to the members of the Facebook page “You know you grew up in Rockport when…” in helping me the people and the possible year. Especially, Dana Johnson for their research time.

I do not know if these images go together or not.

My guess is that they do not. Though the images below are very intriguing to understand what they were to be used for.
