Fishing has long been an essential feature of Cape Ann since long before English settlers came here in 1623. Nearly 400 years later it could be considered the most significant element of her historical narrative. The purpose of this story is to look back at a key turning point of fishing life in Gloucester Massachusetts; the 1930s, 40s, and 50s. This first part in the two part series addresses the 300 year period of sail fishing leading up to this pivotal time.
