An unknown woman that appears to be a part of Ken’s staff. In the last few years I have meet a few people that had worked with Ken, though I do not know who this is, but I find them wonderful portraits.

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?

1970 Star Class North Americans in Rockport MA

Posted 08/03/14 by Eoin Vincent and filed under:

-Note I have been corrected. I was thinking that this was the 1954 North Americans, though a friend pointed out the age of some of the members, this is the 1970 North Americans in Rockport – 

I ran into John Weston’s daughter a few weeks ago in Rockport and was reminded of some of these images of the North Americans that I have been wanting to post. Some classic Rockport sailors that pushed me / influenced me in Star racing in my youth.
