Fort Sewall 12.7.2014

Fort Sewall from Front St 

probably around 1880

Who is the mystery kid in the foreground?

Who knows....

What is certain is every corner and tidal pool 

of that beach and those ledges 

are well known to those of us lucky enough to have played 


For certain those buildings were no doubt tied to

 the working waterfront of town,

an area of town that would soon host many tourists and vacationers

and change this area forever.

This twisted building would in future be home the the "Ocean House" restaurant

known in the teens and 20s for its open porch dining.
