A view from the steeple of the Center Methodist Church, taken in 1899 at low tide, overlooks the Provincetown Cold Storage at the foot of Johnson Street. All of the white buildings in the foreground were part of the freezer plant facilities, the first to be constructed in Provincetown, in 1893. The trolley that brought fish from the trap boats directly into the plant is at the extreme right. Of the six cold-storage structures once located in Provincetown, only one still stands today, the former Consolidated Cold Storage.
This was from the book Old Provincetown in Early Photographs by Irma Ruckstuhl, 1987.
