The Infamous One Found this courtesy the Archives At The Cape Ann Museum. It was listed in The Atlantic Fisherman, April,1941
As I’ve said at least a hundred times now, if you haven’t gone to the Cape Ann Museum whether you’re a resident or Gloucester lover who visits you are missing out on a literal TREASURE TROVE OF GLOUCESTER LOVER ARTIFACTS. You probably drive past the Cape Ann Museum a dozen times a week.
Trust me head downstairs once you get there and ask for The Infamous Fred Buck. Ask him about a piece of old Gloucester you are interested in. I bet you dollars to donuts he digs something up for you!
Ben Curcuru was our Great Grandfather and the man my father Benjamin Liborio (Libby) Ciaramitaro was named after. Pictured are Benny Curcuru(great Grandfather to a ton of cousins in Gloucester and our Great Grandmother Josephine.
