This is my current reading. Upon further investigation I’m not sure that this would have been my first choice of books to read on this topic. But I’m half way through and I’ll plod on.
Summer is on its way. This is the art supplies and clothing shop where I lived and worked in the summer of 1957. I was the live-in cook and shop assistant. It was located in Perkins Cove and the fishermen stored their dories underneath my room – there to the left of the structure. I had only to cross the street to walk the Marginal Way to the beach every morning. What a golden summer!
But this was a long time ago. The owners eventually sold the shop and it was transformed into Barnacle Billy’s – a very popular restaurant. Nevertheless I have my treasured memories of the Brush & Needle Studio, established in 1917, the oldest Gift Shop in Ogunquit.
