Pigeon Hill is the highest point in Rockport. As I wrote here before, its summit once provided a panoramic view that a writer in 1873 said “is excelled nowhere on the New England coast.” Now, the hill is overgrown with vegetation and the view is no more.
This postcard provides a clear view of just how “bald” the hill once was. The postcard bears a Pigeon Cove station postmark dated July 7, 1915. The card was published by Rockport Photo Bureau and printed in Germany.
