1890 Gloucester City Review

The day was when Gloucester was merely a rendez­vous for fisherman and boatmen ; but now it has de­veloped into a growing manufacturing city of eight thousand inhabitants, the various industries employing three thousand hands. The place has churches of all denominations, electric lights, telegraphic, mail, and express facilities. It is desirably located on the banks of the Delaware, facing the southern portion of Phila­delphia.
