Looking back at Fiesta

These photos, submitted by Salvi Ciolino, were taken 10 years apart during St. Peter’s Fiesta.

Ciolino says the top photo is of Bishop Wright leading the procession through a crowd thronging the Fort for the blessing of the fleet in 1948.

The second photo shows Lawrence Oliver and Raymond Sears as the lead carriers of Our Lady of Good Voyage’s statue of St. Peter. The men are carrying the statue down Parker Street to the fish pier for the blessing of the Portuguese fishing fleet in 1938.

Looking Back is a regular feature to give readers a glimpse of Cape Ann’s past through photographs. We are always looking for photos to print. Prints or negatives are required. Newspaper clippings and Xeroxs of photos will not reproduce clearly enough for the newspaper. Photos should be at least 25 years old and should be submitted with any information you know about the photo, as well as your name, address and phone number. Photos may be sent to Day Editor Andrea Holbrook, care of the Times, 36 Whittemore St., Gloucester, MA 01930 or aholbrook@gloucestertimes.com.
