Freeman and Annie Colby, Westport Island, ca. 1930

Contributed by Westport Island History Committee


While Bessie Greenblatt taught on Westport Island at the North End School during the fall and winter of 1929 and the spring of 1930, she boarded with a widow, Annie Robinson Colby (1873-1937).

A relative of Annie's, Freeman Colby, also lived with her, and is seen in this photo being playful while his photo is being taken -- probably by Bessie.

This photo came from Bessie's photo album and was titled by her: "'Free' in gay mood. Mrs. Colby, the one and only."
