Summertime at the Beach

I am hoping someone with sharp eyes can verify which Gloucester beach is shown in this photo of my grandmother Catherine Pierce Ryan and her son Paul Jr. taken probably early 1930s. It might be Long Beach? I like seeing the bathing fashion of the day, which apparently included beaded necklaces and just-so hairstyles.

  1. I believe this was taken in front of the cottage that my family owned from 1951. It was the only duplex on the beach. After we sold it the second owner tore it down and built a home not a cottage.
