Maine lobsterman's room box


Recommended Posts

Amos Gooch was a lobsterman in Cape Porpoise, Maine back around 1900. He used to live in the cottage he'd built for his future bride, Persis Huff, but his heart was broken when Persis ran off with the man on the flying trapeze.  One day a wealthy man from Away wanted to buy his cottage to use as a summer house.  Amos took the cash and here we see him in his new quarters.

That is amazing detail. Love the backstory! The young lady's last name made me laugh...it's My maiden name!

There are Huffs and Gooches who still live in Cape Porpoise. My daughter's first job in high school was working for a Mrs. Huff.

Cute!  I like that you flipped the shelves upside down.

Thanks, they looked just right upside down.
