Bearskin Neck and the ‘Yellow Bowl,’ Rockport, Mass., c. 1929

Compare this view of Bearskin Neck with the lower one in this post. Both are by Rockport Photo Bureau and appear to be from the same time period. Who knows, they could have both been shot the same day.

This one is postmarked Aug. 2, 1929. The bowl-shaped sign advertises the Yellow Bowl, but I have not been able to find anything about it. A restaurant, perhaps?

Of the two men walking towards the camera, the one on the right has a old-fashioned, flat-top straw hat.

The card was printed by The Albertype Co., Brooklyn, N.Y.

    I have a 1926 photo (on a 5×7 glass negative) of the Yellow Bowl, which was a tea house. The building is still there on the southern side of Bearskin Neck, and can be easily identified by the steps leading up to the from door.

    Yellow Bowl may possibly have been the name of the bowling alleys atop the bldg. later owned by artist Otis Cook (Boatshop Studios).
