Abstract

"What's in a Picture?" piece on the schooner "Onward," ablaze in Rockport Harbor at the start of the twentieth century. Fires were common aboard the cargo schooners that carried lime from Rockport, as the processed lime would ignite as soon as moisture touched it. Another fire destroyed the Rockport lime kilns in 1907, as the demand for pure limestone was supplanted by the advent of cement.
