The view at Hospital Point made it a nice place to go parking. I did a watercolor of the view in daylight when I was in junior high . . . my first and last attempt at both watercolor and plein air painting!
This next item was tough to locate but once I started looking at the post cards I had to find it. It's something that I have been saving since high school. I almost "decoupaged" it to a pine board back then. . . glad I didn't. The Whitman building was right across the street from the house on Cabot Street.
Here are my mother and I in the front yard with the brick Whitman building in the background. The back of the photo is dated Aug. 1955. If you followed the road to the left you would come to the Salem-Beverly Bridge.
