Provincetown, MA: 1940s. Original document. On the recto is a photograph of the "Cee Jay" with a party aboard. Text on the verso, in part: "Fishing Trips on Yacht 'Cee Jay' ... Bait and Lines Free ... $4.00 per person ... For safety, by far, the fastest big boat in Provincetown Harbor ... A real fisherman--who's been taking out fishing parties longer than any other man on the pier ... Cap't Bill Cabral, 122 Commercial St., Provincetown, Mass." Very Good. Item #039517
"From the 1940s through the 1960s, Commercial Street and Whorf’s Court was the hub of the large and very active Cabral clan. This was home to the patriarch, William P. “Captain Bill” Cabral (b ±1899) and his wife, Mary (Taves) Cabral (b ±1900). Captain Bill was a fisherman who moved into the party boat business in the 1940s and 1950s, sending groups out aboard the 60-foot cabin cruiser Katherine II, the 57-foot cruiser Caroline, and the 60-foot cruiser Cee Jay."
