Main Street Antiques in Essex is selling mums for $5 as a fund raiser to allow mums to be displayed at Essex businesses this fall.  There are lots to choose from in several colors. They appear to be healthy and it seems like a very good deal to me, especially as a fund raiser.

Replica schooner COLUMBIA off Beauport Hotel 9/2/2018


[photo by Phyllis Bezanson]

In 1927 the original schooner COLUMBIA was lost with all 22 hands near Sable Island. COLUMBIA had been launched in 1923 in Essex and was on a salt cod trip, likely for Gorton’s, for her previous trip was taken out there. Gorton’s was canning fish cakes – ‘Ready to Fry’, they were called, and there was great demand for such a convenience food. When I went to work for Gorton’s in 1964 ‘Ready to Fry’ was still popular but fish sticks were gaining fast in popularity.

There is a movie at the Cape Ann Museum showing the smiling crew of COLUMBIA as she departs on her fatal trip to the banks.

Also in 1927, at the site of this new hotel, Clarence Birdseye, who came to Gloucester the year COLUMBIA was launched, patented a process for rapid ‘indirect freezing’ of fish. His patents led to the birth of the frozen food industry and to the creation of fish sticks. His company, then General Seafoods, was purchased by Marjorie Merriweather Post, aided by E F Hutton and Goldman Sachs, becoming General Foods. The Birdseye brand today is known worldwide.

Birdseye’s plant stood here until just a few years ago when it was replaced by Beauport. The plant had a distinctive tower that housed an elevator to carry salt cod to the roof for drying in the sun.
