Beautiful photography from Judy and Tom Robinson-Cox

Judy and Tom Robinson-Cox are part of the Rocky Neck Art Colony, based in Gloucester, Cape Ann, Massachusetts.

The boats, needless to say, are fabulous. I’ve never seen film of a pinky under way before, so this film is quite a treat just for that!

Biddy the Hastings tub man

Our friend Malcolm Woods spotted this little gem of a film showing Biddy the legendary Hastings tub man in action nearly a century ago – his tub and various cuttings and photos are still in the fisherman’s museum at Hastings, but this really brings his particular crazy way of making a living to life. Thanks Malcolm!
