A Cape Ann Fisherman, 1905

This hand-colored picture of a Cape Ann fisherman is based on the black and white photograph shown to the right. It was taken sometime between 1900 and 1905 for the Detroit Publishing Company, which published this postcard in 1905.

The picture was actually taken in Gloucester, not Rockport, and is one of several pictures the company took of this classic old salt, who looks like he could have been the original inspiration for the Gorton’s fisherman.
