Mary Wade’s Essex renderings are legendary. Her rock painting of Rosslyn’s boathouse depicts Rosslyn’s boathouse as viewed from the Essex-Charlotte ferry dock, an enterprise originally owned by her grandfather, if memory serves. This gift from Mary immediately became a favorite in our collection of her Rosslyn inspired creations.
This certainly isn’t my first Mary Wade post, nor will it be my last. Her memory resonates as strong as ever. Each time I look up on one of her works of art I remember her smile, her delightful sense of humor, and her bottomless repository of old time Essex stories.
