Three ‘Fishermen’ of Cape Ann at the Old Wharf, Rockport, Mass., c. 1942

Note that the fishing shack you see here is not the famed Motif No. 1. Rather, it is the very similar shack that stood on the wharf now known as Tuna Wharf. You can see the two wharves with the two sheds in this postcard.

This card was published by the Rockport Photo Bureau. Although she is not named on the card, I believe the photographer was Virginia Cleaves Little. As I’ve noted before, she took over running the Photo Bureau from her father, Charles Cleaves. This photo resembles several others taken by her, including the one I linked above and also this one.

I have a black-and-white version of this same postcard. This colorized version is nicely done.

The card has no date or postmark. Most of her pictures are from between 1940 and 1945 and other similar ones I have are from 1942.
