|Cheever Street, Danvers, 1959 - Photo collage by Ken Beck|
During last summer's Danvers high school reunion I heard many stories about Danversport. Ken and other classmates reminisced about places and people they had known there and the experiences they had shared in childhood. I realized how very little I had known about Danversport, as I grew up in the woods and fields of the northern part of the town, far from the port. Wishing to learn more, I encouraged my classmates to write down their stories and share them. Ken has done so, and I thank him. This spring Ken sent me a long autobiographical piece, which I will share in segments in upcoming columns.
See the May column for many quotations from Ken Beck, my friend from Cheever Street.
