Snail's Postcard Post

The Bay State

 On this day–November 10–in 1620, The Mayflower reached what would become Massachusetts. Yesterday’s date–November 9–meanwhile marks the anniversary of the Great Boston Fire of 1872 which burned for somewhere between 12 and 20 hours–into the next day, November 10. Sounds like a historically appropriate time to present my Massachusetts postcards.  

 

 

Although the Pilgrims settled at what would become Provincetown on November 11 or 21 by differing accounts, the place at which The Mayflower first reached land on November 10 has been identified as Cape Cod.
