This is the first early-1900s postcard I’ve seen that refers to the Rockport Granite Company pier by the name Granite Pier. Although that is what we call it today, I had not previously found any references from that era that use the name.
This postcard was postmarked on June 18, 1908, and mailed to an address in Roxbury, Mass. The note on the back, dated June 17, urges the recipient to “begin to think about coming on the steamer.” The writer adds, “It has not begun to run yet but thought it was time for you to think it over and come before the fog.”
