A resident where I work stopped by the office and thought I'd like a few old time Gloucester photos. Boy was he right, of all the photos I've seen of Gloucester I yet yet to see these. They were taken by a friend of a deceased relative of his. All he knows was the first name of the Photographer "Salvi", he's going to try to find out his last name. These were not dated but others he had one was marked "1928". Judging by the vessels, no radar or radio antennas are visible which leads me to a time frame of the late 1920's to the early 1930's. This would put this era as the sail to motorized transitional period.
The photos wouldn't fit on my scanner so I had to lay them on the floor and photograph them. That process allowed me to remove the yellowing aged look. I was glad I was able to get the detail as they were.
You can see the spires of the Trinity Church, City Hall and St. Ann's.
A bit rough out!
