I have so far generally restricted this blog to postcards from my own collection. However, in the course of surfing the Web for research, I often come across historical images of Rockport posted elsewhere. Rather than keep these finds to myself, it makes sense to share them here.
This picture is one of the oldest I’ve come across online. It is captioned, “View inside the break-waters, Rockport harbor, 1882.” It comes from the image collection of the National Marine Sanctuaries division of the National Oceanic & Atmospheric Administration.
