Common and Square, Rockport, Mass., circa 1912

The view here is from Broadway looking south. Mt. Pleasant St. is to the left and High St. comes into it from the right. The diagonal cross street to the right of the common is no longer there. To the far right, out of view of this picture, would be the Baptist church.

This postcard has no date and identifies no publisher. I have another card, postmarked 1919, that is identical in style and in its markings on the reverse side. However, the presence of horse-drawn carriages and the absence of automobiles makes me think this view must be from earlier than 1919. Thus, I am pegging it at 1912 — admittedly a guess, but in the ballpark.
