Town of Rockport Town Meeting

Posted 05/22/16 by Eoin Vincent and filed under:

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.

Vincent Advertising Staff

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.

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?
