The Fish on Fridays series is a collaboration between Gloucester photographers Kathy Chapman and Marty Luster. Look for various aspects of Gloucester’s centuries-old fishing industry highlighted here on Fridays.
This week Kathy continues with part two of the documentary on Felicia Oil’s family business. John Nicastro (son of Sam Nicastro) now manages the fuel dock. The first picture shows him capturing the flag on the greasy pole at Fiesta in 1955. The second is a shot taken in 2009 at the National Marine Fisheries (pictured left to right): John Nicastro, Nick Sanfilippo and Frank Cattone. The next two are photographs of the dock today and a video interview ends this series.
