This postcard of Pigeon Cove is not dated. The derrick scow in the center of the photo appears to be the same one shown in an earlier post here putting granite blocks on the Sandy Bay breakwater. That earlier postcard was postmarked 1912, so I am assuming this is from the same time period.
Some details to note include the horse-drawn cart in the lower left and the four-masted schooner in the center, possibly used to transport granite. A bump on the horizon, just to the left of the schooner’s forward mast, might be the Straitsmouth Inn, which stood on Gap Head near the life-saving station from 1906 until it burned to the ground on New Year’s Eve, Dec. 31, 1958.
This postcard was published by the Rockport Photo Bureau.
