Last five posts from the CHAT-M-Room
(Town Common) are:
Paul Karr went to sea as a Merchant Marine telegraphist and may well have worked at WCC. I will check the RCA pay records.

Okay, so the plot thickens with Stephen Page dropping off a telegraph key that was formerly Paul Karr's. Does anyone know if former Postmaster Karr served anywhere as a Radio Operator? I plan to turn the key over to the Chatham Marconi Maritime Museum. It has vestiges of tape wrapped around the heavy base, which indicates to me that it might have been used aboard ship; the tape to keep it from sliding.

Richard, I have a copy of that photo.Will get it to Gordon at some point.
Since I think it is a Kelsey photo. Looks like Dick Kelsey on end of lower step.
Eddy Doane, perhaps Ann Doane, with a couple of Corrigans added in. Maybe a Forgeron girl in back row?
Thanks again for including me for your class 60th reunion.

Richard.. The name of the Inn was Duncreeven. A relative of mine by the name of Chester Kendrick died there and my mother took care of the burial... Frank Dills' house was located on the corner of Old Harbor Rd. and Highland Ave. today that would place the house in the corner of Catholic Church parking lot..

Barry: Is it possible that the picture was taken on the steps of the Kendall Green, a two story rooming house that was just on the North side of what is now the Bank Of America on Old Harbor Road?
Stephen Page, who lived on the street where the Catholic church is and was, could not ID any but a couple of the boys in the picture. He stopped by today while I was out to drop off a telegraph key that Paul Karr used, and a duffel bag from Benjamin Oliver Eldredge's house, what was next door to the Pages on Highland Ave.
"Benny Oliver" was a Surfman at Old Harbor Station starting in 1898.
Today, the plot has definitely thickened.
Gordon: What was the name of the Inn? Didn't Frankie Dill live there later?
