editor’s note

Let’s Celebrate! If you’re curious where you can find the best local ice cream shop, martini bar or manicure, we’ve got you covered. Our August issue is one of the most anticipated of the entire year because it contains the results of our annual Best of the South Shore reader poll. After tallying a record number of votes this year, we’re excited to finally be able to announce the winners! Balmy August days are perfect for going to the beach. We sent our summer interns out to uncover the best South Shore beaches. From soft sand to rocky coves, this list tells you what you need to know before you go. Fine art photographer Ann-Marie Rollo captured the beautiful beach image on our cover as well as the animated photographs of the Aldous Collins Band featured in the article “Pura Vida.” If you’ve ever driven by Roht Marine in Scituate on a Wednesday night, you’ve likely seen the crowd that gathers to hear this local band. Read all about the group and how they strive to brighten people’s day with uplifting tunes and learn about their newest song release. One of the best ways to enjoy the summer weather is to spend time outdoors. Writer Laura DeSisto penned an article about a beautiful home in Cohasset with the ultimate pool cabana and outdoor kitchen, built for outdoor living. In other exciting news, our sister publications Hingham Magazine and Plymouth Magazine are out on newsstands and are filled with stories about the fascinating people and hidden gems found in these communities. Last, but certainly not least, we’re having a party and we’d love you to come! Our Best of the South Shore Party will take place on September 12 at Granite Links Golf Club in Quincy. Join us as we honor this year’s winners, enjoy delectable food and drink from top restaurants and vendors and dance the night away to tunes provided by the Aldous Collins Band. It’s going to be a night to remember. Be sure to follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram @SSLivingMag. Enjoy!

Industrial-Chic Carryall Launched in May by Hingham resident Karin Monfredo, George & Dino bags are a modern take on the classic tote bag. Inspired by an industrial tool bag, the totes are designed to withstand the demands of everyday life. Colorful reflective panels make the bags stand out while interior pockets and durable construction make them a practical choice. “You can go from the beach to the ball field to the grocery store,” says Monfredo. “It’s the perfect family bag.” George & Dino bags come in large and small sizes but with names like “The Tank” and “The Hulk,” they’re all built to last. In an effort to be environmentally friendly, the totes are cut and sewn at a factory in Western Massachusetts that derives almost 70 percent of its power from the Connecticut River and an additional 10 percent from a network of solar panels. “I like to think we’re making the world a little brighter,” says ssliving.com

Salty Portraits

Duxbury oysters are listed on restaurant menus across the country, but few people get to know the farmers who help bring the briny bivalves to the table. In its newest exhibition, “Oyster Farm Photographs,” The Art Complex Museum reveals the faces and stories of the oyster industry through photography. Raw portraits by Dedham photographer Jim Hooper showcase the faces of local people who work in Duxbury’s shellfish industry. Hooper photographs people in their work clothes against a simple cloth backdrop in his studio at the Duxbury Maritime School. These portraits are part of Hooper’s larger project of portraits featuring the men and women who farm oysters  in the coastal towns of Boston’s South Shore and Cape Cod. 18

SOUTH SHORE LIVING

The exhibit also features images by Evvy Eisen, a photographer whose photographs portray an era of oyster farming in California that has now ended. A New York artist who works in the San Francisco Bay area, Eisen’s photos document the final year of Drakes Bay Oyster Company, which closed its facilities after the National Park Service lease that protected the farm was denied renewal in 2012. Amidst political debate over the environmental and ethical consequences of the decision, Eisen sought to photograph the immigrant workers whose jobs and homes were threatened, to put human faces on what had become an abstract and theoretical dilemma. Hooper’s and Eisen’s photography can be viewed at The Art Complex Museum from August 19 to November 4.. 189 Alden St., Duxbury, artcomplex.org —Courtney Garvey

A New Boutique Finds the Right Fit PHIA Boutique opened its doors at the corner of South Main and Brook Street in Cohasset on June 2 and specializes in clothing for tweens, teens and adult women. Owners Michelle Gardiner and Karina Mendoza met while working as stylists at White House Black Market in Hingham and understood the struggles associated with shopping for kids transitioning between child and adult sizes. The two entrepreneurs set out to open a business that would cater to this specific need, while creating a shopping environment that would make each woman

Kjeld Mahoney Owner of Kjeld Mahoney Photography How long have you had your photography studio and what does it offer? We have had our gallery/studio in Scituate Harbor for nine years. We offer beautifully framed and custom-mounted canvas and metal prints of many local nautical scenes and coastal locations. Most of our frames and mounts are handmade pieces made out of driftwood and antique/reclaimed wood. What’s an example of a really cool custom photo project/product that you’ve made? I have been recently creating “live edge” frames made out of driftwood. I leave rusty nails and all the character of the wood intact and just frame the top left or right corner and sides, leaving the live edge of the driftwood exposed.

What do you love most about being a photographer? Total freedom of your schedule. Every day is a different experience. Making a living as an artist is an amazing feeling. I was not a fan of corporate cubicles. The challenge to stay relevant and in demand is getting harder and harder but it keeps me motivated.

LIVING ARTS •••

An Eye for South Shore Beauty Duxbury artist Bettina Lesieur welcomes guests to her 20th annual open studio and gallery exhibition “Eye of the Beholder.” Whether depicting lush coastal marshes or expansive seascapes, artist Bettina Lesieur uses delicate brushstrokes to create landscape paintings that are quintessentially New England. With her trained eye for capturing the region’s natural beauty, Leisure characterizes her style of painting as “traditional realism,” as she attempts to represent subject matter truthfully with an emphasis on light and shadow to create the illusion of depth. Lesieur credits her parents, who were both artists themselves, for influencing her own approach to painting. Their sketches and paintings also emphasize the natural world, and Lesieur believes this style came to her “through osmosis.” Now, Leisure shares her passion with students aged 6 to 18 who come to her Duxbury studio for after-school and summer art classes. ssliving.com

Because the beauty of her surroundings—be it Massachusetts or beyond—inspires Lesieur so deeply, the effort behind her artistry occurs as much in the great outdoors as it does in her studio. “My work

doesn’t take place solely at my easel,” says Lesieur. “No matter what I am doing—gardening, walking, traveling or setting a table—everything is captured with a visual eye as a vignette that I can compose, arrange and use for a future painting.” Aptly named, her upcoming exhibition, “Eye of the Beholder,” will feature her scenes of the lavender fields of Provence and the cascading cliffs of Mediterranean villages as well as her signature South Shore marshes

and beaches. The public is invited to Lesieur’s studio and gallery on August 4 and 5. Pottery from South Shore artisan Lisa Howard and paintings by Lesieur’s late father, Robert W. Lesieur, will also be on view. There will be an opening reception on August 3, from 6-9 p.m. and the exhibit is open Saturday and Sunday, 11 a.m. – 5 p.m. or by appointment. 301 St. George St., Duxbury. For more information, visit bettinalesieur. com.—Courtney Garvey

Each summer, Duxbury artist Bettina Lesieur holds an open house to showcase her latest landscape paintings. This year’s exhibit includes images of recognizable South Shore vistas as well as scenes from Lesieur’s travels abroad.

Blending the poetry of Greenwich Village in the ‘60s with the unmistakable harmony of Laurel Canyon in the ‘70s, the High South sound exudes the magic and timelessness of both these eras, while infusing a palpable new millennium sensibility. High South band members Kevin Campos, Jamey Garner and Phoenix Mendoza – three gifted “lead singer-songwriters” delivering one undeniable voice – are produced by Josh Leo. 8 p.m. $20- $30, 78 Border St., Scituate, theriverclubmusichall.com

Best of the South Shore It’s the moment you’ve all been waiting for—the results of the 2018 Best of the South Shore Awards! After receiving a record-breaking number of reader surveys through our annual online poll, our editorial team tallied the winners in each category. What follows is a list of the top businesses and services in the region, as well as a few of our personal favorites, spotlighted as Editor’sw Picks.

BEST CURATED COCKTAIL LIST

DERRICK ZELLMANN

THE TOWNSHEND Located on the first floor of Presidents’ Place, at the heart of Quincy Center, The Townshend is a hip eatery known for its master mixologists. The restaurant recently celebrated its third anniversary and has been part of the town’s growing food and drink scene. Palmer Matthews, a Quincy native, manages the bar and cocktail program. Everything is crafted with care and expertly presented. Try a refreshing summer cocktail like the June Bug, which contains a mix of rose, raspberry, lime and vodka garnished with dried rose buds or a unique fruity drink like the Bramble, which combines dry gin with fresh lemon and blackberry. While old-school drinks like Manhattans and Amaretto Sours are taken very seriously, they also make a mean Tiki drink. In fact, there’s an entire section of the menu dedicated to dangerously tasty concoctions like the Jamaican Painkiller and Real McCoy Mai Tai. thetownshend.com

TOWNIE FROZEN DESSERTS

3 editor’s pick

Few things taste better on a hot summer day than a dish of fruity sorbet. Hull residents Robin Flint and Stephen Gore are the owners of Townie Frozen Desserts, a business that specializes in making vegan, non-dairy, nut-free ice cremes, sorbets and flavored ices. But you don’t have to be vegan to enjoy them. Each flavor is made from scratch in small batches at a shared kitchen facility in Kingston called Peggy’s Kitchen. The couple work the South Shore farmers market circuit, scooping a wide assortment of refreshing sorbet flavors, such as strawberry, mango lime ginger and raspberry lime rickey. Their non-dairy ice cremes, made with a coconut base, taste silky and smooth. Try the German chocolate, Key-lime pie or Hawaiian Dream (if you like piña coladas). towniefrozendesserts.com AUGUST 2018

BEST BLEND OF ITALIAN CUISINE AND CELEBRITY SIGHTINGS

NOVARA Executive Chef Anthony DeRienzo puts a creative spin on traditional Italian cuisine at this popular restaurant, located where the Milton Cinema once stood. With 23-foot-high ceilings, an open kitchen design and a large projection screen on the back wall, Novara is designed to be entertaining. An added bonus is the fact that one of the restaurant’s investors just happens to be Jordan Knight, who rose to fame in the 80s as the lead singer of New Kids on the Block. Knight lives in ssliving.com

Milton and is known to stop by Novara and its sister restaurant, Abby Park, three to four times a week, so your chances of snagging a celebrity selfie are fairly good. “Chef Tony is always changing things up and keeping the menu fresh,” says Knight. “Currently my favorite dish is the barbeque swordfish, but some of my all-time favorite menu staples are the chicken parm meatballs and the calamari.” 556 Adams St., Milton, 617-696-8400, novararestaurant.com

WHAT DO YOU GET THE HOUSE THAT HAS EVERYTHING? Increasingly, the answer to this question seems to be high-end outdoor spaces with all the amenities. Architect Heidi Condon of HC Design, Inc. in Scituate has seen a rise in requests for outdoor spaces from her South Shore clients. “Despite the harsh New England weather, many homeowners are installing outdoor living and kitchen areas,” says Condon.  “Most want easy entertaining with a large built-in grill, appliances and counters so they can cook and still be part of the action.” In 2010, Condon helped a Cohasset family renovate and restore the magnificent 7,000-squarefoot Belcliffe Estate (circa 1872) perched atop the famed “gold coast” of Jerusalem Road. As much as the family enjoyed their newly restored home, as their three children grew, they wanted to create outdoor areas where they could gather with friends and family. Condon was re-enlisted for the outdoor project and teamed up with landscape architect Sean Papich to maximize the use of the landscape. The result is a multi-functional space with several distinct zones: a gunite pool and hot tub, blue stone patios, flat grassy play areas, seasonal gardens and a spectacular pool house.

A reclaimed wood shelf above the sink, made from a weathered old tree on the property, is the perfect spot to display barware. In the pool house, cozy, neutral-colored indoor/outdoor sofas from Arhaus get a lot of use during football season.

“The pool house is really the jewel on the property,” says Condon. “We were able to incorporate all the bells and whistles—a working kitchen, a lounge area complete with an outdoor TV and sophisticated sound system, layered ssliving.com

lighting, glass windows and a bar area with a moveable wall of windows called a Nanawall, which can be used to close off the seating area, providing protection from the elements and extending the use of the space into the fall.”

The 13-foot long granite topped bar can be opened up to the pool house by large Nanawall windows. The powder-coated finish on the custom aluminum cabinets from Chatham Refinishing resists damage from the salty Atlantic air. The pool and hot tub were designed and installed by Aquaknot Pools of Weymouth.

AUGUST 2018

Condon notes that pool houses are often designed with wide openings that afford a seamless transition between outdoor and indoor spaces. In this case, the transition was eased by architectural details that echo those of the main house. The columns, for example, are finished in the same stone and shingle detail as the 1890s home. Bluestone patterns—designed by landscape architect Sean Papich and installed by James Rosano and Son Masonry—extend from inside the pool house to the patio area and the edge of natural stone outcroppings. “We incorporated a mix of rustic, irregular bluestone to complement the existing ledge stone and Select Blue bluestone—a diamond pattern with a formal banding for the area in front of the pool pavilion—for a more tailored approach at the outdoor living/dining space.  The intent for that treatment is for it to feel like an area rug in an outdoor living/dining room,” says Papich, whose firm has also seen a surge in requests for outdoor living spaces. “Back when I started out of college in 1989, most homeowners were looking for help with pools, terraces and walkways, and then  choosing plant materials.  Now, depending upon the project, we  could be designing outdoor kitchens, fire features, shade structures, play areas, lounge areas with outdoor TVs, even ‘she-sheds’ and ‘man caves’,” says Papich.

ssliving.com

In the case of the Belcliffe Estate, the lot was large enough for Papich to incorporate multiple “use areas” into the landscape. A grassy space adjacent to the pool is the perfect spot for lawn games. A boxwood hedge frames the outside bar area, creating what feels like an outdoor room. Atop the Terra-Stone exposed aggregate pool decking, neutral Restoration Hardware lounge chairs invite relaxation. Seasonal gardens add visual interest and help to frame the pool and patio areas. Papich incorporated a mix of forms-like structured boxwood hedges and crisp, rectangular lawn panels to contrast with the looser drifts of ornamental grasses, perennials and flowering shrubs—resulting in an appealing composition of architectural and natural shapes and textures.  Grant Daley Landscape of Hingham brought Papich’s planting plans to life.  New England Woodworkers built the fence elements, and Atlantic View Landscape Lighting installed the landscape lighting. Condon reports that the family is thrilled with the transformation of their property. “Projects like these can really enhance and extend the use of a home,” she says. “It’s always gratifying to see families spending more quality time together in the great outdoors.”

GREEN HARBOR BEACH A jetty stretches into the sea at the edge of this picturesque beach. From your beach chair you can watch fishing boats sailing in and out of Green Harbor. A resident parking sticker is required to access the lot and space is at a premium. Most beachgoers walk from surrounding neighborhoods, grabbing a lobster roll from the nearby Green Harbor Lobster Pound or a snow cone on the boardwalk before making the trek down to the beach.

HUMAROCK BEACH A spacious and quiet beach with a small-town feel, Humarock brings all of the water-filled summer fun with none of the crowds. With fine, hard-packed sand, sweeping dunes and swaying beach grass, this Scituate beach (accessible through Marshfield) has it all. There are lifeguards on duty between late June and Labor Day. Seals can sometimes be spotted. A wide variety of restaurants, gift shops and a general store are all within walking distance and small bonfires are permitted. Public parking can be hard to find at this isolated gem, so consider investing in a seasonal pass. With a Scituate beach sticker there’s an accessible large parking lot at Ferry Street, located off of Route 3A. Nonresident day passes are also available.

DUXBURY BEACH PARK Day parking passes are available for this public beach, accessed via Gurnet Road in Marshfield. Beachgoers can visit The Pavilion, a snack and ice cream shack complete with bathrooms and showers, or Blakeman’s, a fullservice seafood restaurant.

With three miles of smooth sand, Plymouth’s Long Beach is the perfect place for a summer stroll along the bay. At its tip you can spy Saquish in the distance. When you leave the beach you can refuel with a seafood platter at the beachside restaurant Sandy’s. Bathrooms and lifeguards are situated near the beginning of the beach. Parking stickers are available for residents and non-residents. 82

ALDOUS COLLINS BAND DELIVERS UPBEAT SONGS AND POSITIVE VIBES BY MARIA ALLEN PHOTOGRAPHY BY ANN-MARIE ROLLO

f ever there was a musical group capable of bottling the essence of summer, it would be the Aldous Collins Band (ACB). A high-energy, indie-funk group whose members hail from the South Shore and Boston, ACB’s music is characterized by driving drum beats, groovy guitar riffs and soaring horns. Whether performing on the deck at Roht Marine, beside the North River, or beneath glowing patio lights at Riva in Scituate Harbor, ACB consistently draws a crowd of enthusiastic fans who show up ready to dance. “We really let go when we’re playing,” says frontman Aldous Collins, who is known for his animated showmanship behind the mic. “We try to write songs that audiences will relate to and hope to bring a little light and happiness into people’s lives.” 86

SOUTH SHORE LIVING

This uplifting sentiment is reflected in many of Collins’ original song lyrics, which encourage listeners to shed negativity, think positively and love more. Some of the band’s most popular songs include “Bulletproof,” “Dynomite,” “Super Funky,” and their radio hit, “Bernadette,” which has aired on Boston’s independent radio station, 92.5 The River. “It’s pretty rare for an unsigned act to get radio play,” says Collins. “But we’ve been really lucky.” The ACB has performed all over New England at places like the Paradise Rock Club in Boston, The Chicken Box on Nantucket, Levitate Music and Arts Festival in Marshfield and Mad Love Music Festival in Hingham. They have also received numerous industry accolades, including winning New England Music awards for “Best of New Hampshire”

in 2014 (Collins is originally from Goffstown, New Hampshire) and “Live Act of the Year” in 2015. There are no setlists at ACB performances, but that’s part of the magic. Band members feed off the energy of the audience and infuse each performance with a sense of joyful spontaneity. The fans respond by bouncing up and down to the rhythm, undulating like a wave, with their arms raised in the air. ACB is a seven-piece ensemble headed up by Collins, a Hanover resident, who sings lead, rocks a baseball cap and occasionally plays a uke. Unlike many musicians who grow up with a guitar in their hands, Collins didn’t really start playing music until he was 28 years old. Once he caught the bug, however, he was hooked. Inspired by artists like Bob Marley, G Love and Donavon Frankenreiter, Collins founded ACB in 2012 and says that the band’s sound has evolved over the years as new band members have joined the group, each contributing their own musical flair. Band members include Berklee grads Michael Rahman, on guitar and vocals, and trumpet player Sam Dechenne of Cambridge (who also gigs with the Boston reggae/roots band John Brown’s ssliving.com

Body). Then there’s Luke Brech on drums, Kevin Hennessey on keyboards and vocals, Mark King on bass and Steve Smith on percussion and vocals. A U.K. native, Smith rose to fame as a member of the British group Dirty Vegas, whose mega-hit “Days Go By” won a Grammy for Best Dance Recording in 2002. After a trip across the pond to visit a friend, Smith and his family fell in love with the South Shore and decided to move to Scituate. “Back in 2013, I was introduced to Michael Rahman, who asked me to come check his band out,” says Smith. “I was blown away by the infectious energy the band gave out and

I asked if I could play with them when I wasn’t touring.” Currently on tour with the British rock band Sqeeze, Smith enjoys coming home to play for the South Shore crowd. “ACB has steadily built a loyal fan base from across New England and that’s due to many things—the feel-good style of music they play, the energy of the live shows, but mostly the connection between the fans and the band. It’s like one big family,” says Smith.   Appealing to people from all walks of life,

ACB audiences include a mix of ages and socioeconomic backgrounds, but everyone is there to have fun. The band’s upcoming summer release “Pura Vida,” inspired by a trip Collins made to Costa Rica, reminds listeners to appreciate the simple things in life. “Life is hard, and we attempt to bring people out of their daily struggles with a positive message and positive energy,” says Collins. “When people are open to accepting the joy we bring, we have some of our most enjoyable memories.”

Craft Cocktail Newcomer Rockland’s Crooked Oak Distillery is less than a year old, but it has already made a splash with its handcrafted, barrel-aged spirits. Norwell residents James and Melissa Mamary operate the boutique farmer distillery and have put a twist on tradition by aging their spirits in wine barrels, which gives them a unique flavor profile. The couple make an effort to source local ingredients when possible and everything is done by hand, from the fermenting and distilling to the aging and bottling. Crooked Oak’s Barrel Reserve Gin is distilled in tequila barrels imported from Mexico. The gin has a beautiful golden tint and an earthiness that blends perfectly with the gin ssliving.com

botanicals. The aging method also creates a hint of agave sweetness. This gin pairs well with local grilled seafood and makes a great gin and tonic. Crooked Oak Barrel Reserve Vodka is rested in a red wine barrels that are sourced from Napa Valley. This spirit has a slight rosy color, a floral aroma and a smooth finish with hints of oak and vanilla. It makes a great martini and pairs well with steak, seafood or lightly seasoned vegetables. Crooked Oak Distillery currently distributes its products at 20 liquor stores on Cape Cod, the South Shore and in Greater Boston. Private tastings are available by appointment.

RESTAURANT PROFILE

Dialing Up the Flavor

Riva impresses with a new chef and a renovated bar BY MARIA ALLEN | PHOTOGRAPHY BY JACK FOLEY Sometimes even tried-and-true restaurants can benefit from a facelift. Take Riva, for example. The popular Scituate eatery has been around for 18 years (owned by restaurateur Kara Tondorf for the past six) and thanks to a new chef, renovated bar and revamped menu, local foodies have even more reasons to revisit this old favorite. Chef Jason Heard arrived at Riva in March and has helped to refresh the restaurant’s menu. Growing up in a military family, Heard spent a lot of time traveling the world, which exposed him to a variety of cooking styles and techniques. Before moving to the South Shore, he was the chef/owner at East Coast Grill in Cambridge and also spent a few years in the kitchen at Coppersmith’s in South Boston. Having lived 92

SOUTH SHORE LIVING

in Georgia and Key West, Florida, for a good portion of his life, Heard infuses southern flair into many of his recipes. The new menu at Riva perfectly blends the restaurant’s traditional Italian roots with Heard’s New American cooking style. Regulars can still order their favorite dishes, like the chicken parmesan, chicken with broccoli and sweet Italian sausage ragu, but there is a greater emphasis on local seafood and global flavors. I recently had a chance to sample a few of the new dishes on the menu and was impressed by the depth of flavor that was showcased. Standout entrees include cumin-seared New Bedford scallops served over corn chowder, Delmonico steak served with grilled peaches and pecan pesto and West Indian coconut-curry lobster

When you run out of charcoal and the propane tank is empty... (the lobster special of the day) that comes generously coated in a subtly sweet curry sauce. “The star of the plate is the protein,” says Heard, who purchases his seafood locally from Mullaney’s Fish Market. The new menu also features small plates, which can be enjoyed as a precursor to the meal but are also great for sharing with friends. Try the buttery chargrilled oysters topped with Parmesan and paprika, the tuna poke served over seaweed salad or the steamed PEI mussels. Guests can enjoy these delectable dishes in the newly renovated bar area, which features new wood on the walls, tables and bar top, built by Rustic Marlin in Hanover. Wash down your meal with a refreshing Margarita flight. Guests can choose three flavors. Options include watermelon, cranberry, raspberry, mango, blackberry or spicy sangria. The restaurant is also promoting “Summer Sundays on the Patio,” where a stripped-down menu of local seafood favorites is offered (think buckets of steamers and peel-and-eat shrimp). After a long day at the beach, it doesn’t get much better.

LOOK BACK •••

The Harlow Old Fort House BY JOHN GALLUZZO The South Shore is blessed with an overabundance of historic homes, but only a select few are open to the public. Many are off the beaten path; hence the formation of Back Roads of the South Shore, a collaboration among the region’s historical societies and house museum preservation organizations. Even in Plymouth, a hotbed of local history, places like the

Plymouth Antiquarian Society’s Harlow Old Fort House can be overlooked. This 17th-century homestead was once home to the multitalented William Harlow. The property, which is located on Summer Street is also an archaeological site. If you miss it this summer, come back on Saturday, October 13 for the Colonial Fall Festival and Archaeology Day.

MRS. BRUCE During the pageantry of the 1920s and 1930s, when the region around Boston celebrated tercentennial anniversaries in seemingly every small town, hats and shoes with buckles dominated the day. Prior to Plimoth Plantation’s advent, the Harlow House was one place where it was possible to interact with “real” Pilgrims and learn how they lived their lives.

HARLOW CA. 1922 With the town abuzz with the approaching tercentenary, the Plymouth Antiquarian Society moved quickly to preserve at least one house from the early days of the community. The society purchased the house for $3000 in 1920—during the 300th anniversary—and set about restoring it. By 1922 it was open to the public and has been ever since.

While museum exhibits may rotate and change, a good house museum stays in place, interpreting a specific moment in time. Rough cut timbers should never be replaced unless with other rough cut timbers. Tools, cooking utensils, furniture and other everyday objects should be original or as near to exact facsimiles as possible. And so it is in the Harlow House. When we step into the kitchen, it’s the same one Rose Briggs stepped into all those years ago, and hopefully would be very familiar to William Harlow himself. 102

HARLOW POSTCARD CA. 1892-97 Postcards often capture idyllic moments in time, under the guise of modernity. Printers and sellers tried to sell what was beautiful about a town in the moment. In the case of the Harlow House, the printer caught an important snapshot of the house prior to its early 1920s restoration.

PLYMOUTH ROCK DOORSTEP One tale attached to the Harlow House concerns its front step. Through the years, Plymouth Rock gained quite a bit of fame, so much so that everybody wanted a piece of it, literally. Legends have pieces as far away as Hull, England (that one is really a piece of the old portico, and not the rock itself). One piece allegedly ended up as part of the steps at Harlow House, but is no longer there. It was broken up and auctioned off to help keep the museum alive.

ROSE BRIGGS As beautiful as historic photos of exteriors can be, interior shots often outdo them due to their rarity. Here, Rose Briggs, a pioneering Plymouth historian, demonstrates how to work a loom which, in the earliest days, was considered men’s work. Briggs is memorialized with a garden dedicated in her name behind the Hedge House on the Plymouth waterfront.

LAST SCENE HERE •••

“I Scream, You Scream, We All Scream for Ice Cream!” PAINTING BY PAMELA COPEMAN

When asked how she would describe her artwork, Pamela Copeman exclaims, “I paint happy!” Looking at her paintings, which feature a cast of whimsical subjects depicted in bright pops of color, the viewer can’t help but feel happy, too. Copeman is a Hull resident who loves to capture the “beautiful things that catch her eye,” from flowers and home interiors to festive foods. Her popsicle painting was inspired by a photograph. “When I look at it, I can almost feel the cool raspberry flavor melting in my mouth,” says Copeman. “It’s summer on a stick.” Copeman describes her painting style as “Impressionist 104

SOUTH SHORE LIVING

Realist.” Her images always resemble what they are meant to be, but with a lightness of stroke that transforms them into something dreamier. Copeman paints several times a week, and when she’s not in the studio she’s busy operating her luxury interior design business. Her two passions often intertwine, with some of her design clients purchasing paintings for their homes and her designer friends purchasing paintings for their clients. As a result, Copeman’s work has been placed in homes across the country. For more information, visit pamelacopemanart.com.—Courtney Garvey
