Mariner's Home, New Bedford, MA, 1961

Today UMass  intern Amy DesRosiers is wrapping up her project to catalog negatives taken in 1961 by photographer Ned Goode. These photos were made as part of a United States Dept. of Interior project called the Historic American Buildings Survey.

The photograph shown here is of the Mariner’s Home, directly across the street from the New Bedford Whaling Museum’s main entrance on Johnny Cake Hill. Read more out the Mariner’s Home, and New Bedford Port Society which maintains it  from their blog.
