We are straying across the border from Rockport into Gloucester for this old view of the Rockport Granite Company’s wharves in Bay View. The site pictured here was in the news just this week, with the Gloucester Times reporting that it is about to become the new home of the Large Pelagics Research Laboratory, a facility dedicated to the study of bluefin tuna and other long-distance marine travelers.
I previously posted a view of Rockport Granite’s wharf in Rockport, at what is now called Granite Pier. The Bay View operation served the company’s quarries in Lanesville.
This postcard is postmarked 1906. There is a small logo that may identify its publisher, but I do not recognize it.
