would like to take this time to thank Ron Guertin, his wife Barbara, as well as Lori and John Guertin, for
the opportunity to be part of their vision, as well as their work and
dedication to their own preservation efforts. To not only have my full
collection of Newburyport prints exhibited within the brand new
restored confines and furnished decor settings of the Essex Street Inn
is simply a dream come true for me. I hope that the work is view from people all over this country as well as the world for many years to come.
