Town Hall, Rockport, Mass., circa 1909

Compare this postcard of Rockport’s former town hall with this black and white one. Also, read the text I posted along with that earlier card for some of the history of this building.

Neither of these two cards has a date. I guesstimated the date of the earlier card as 1910. This card appears to be even earlier. Note that there is no light pole in front of it, as there is in the other picture. Note also the horse and wagon parked in front. This card is no older than 1907, and I am going to guesstimate the date here as 1909.

I would love to hear from anyone who knows more about the history of this building. In particular, I would appreciate knowing when and why it came down.

The reverse side of this card has no postmark and identifies no publisher.
