Historically Speaking: Florists a big part of Dover - Seacoastonline.com
Daughters of the American Revolution?).In 1921, Howe sold the business to Elwill Shortridge, a prominent Dover entrepreneur, owner of the C.E. Brewster Co., wholesale druggists, which was located in a building at the corner of Chestnut and Fourth streets, now the site of St. Mary's Parish Hall. At one time Shortridge also served as president of Merchants National Bank and president of the Dover Realty Co. He and his wife, who had been Ada Massingham, lived at 4 West Concord St., and he remained active in the business until his death in 1946. Ada then took over and with her nephew, Tom Massingham, managed the operation until her death in 1958.Tom Massingham had been born in England, but at age 5 was sent by his family to Dover to live with the Shortridges. As a young man he worked in the business, served in World War II, and upon his return and at Ada's death, became the owner of the Garrison Hill Greenhouses. In 1950, he was one of the first to construct a building on the nascent Miracle Mile, at what was then called Page's corner, opposite Glenwood Avenue. It was originally intended to be a retail flower and gift shop, but on Nov. 25-26 Mother Nature intervened at the Garrison Hill site with close to hurricane force winds that shattered greenhouse glass, entirely uprooting one building which landed on another, and causing an estimated $50,000 damage, well over a half million dollars in today's money.As a result, production at that location was limited and a much-reduced greenhouse space was grafted on to the building at Central Avenue. Over time the original greenhouse structures were dismantled and removed, the space eventually covered by apartment buildings, and the only reminder we have of what was there is the name of the street, Floral Avenue. (The business remains in operation, however, with the next generation, Thomas Massingham as owner, located in the small plaza at the corner of Chestnut and Fourth streets.)This was not the only florist operation in town. Recently we mentioned the Elliott Greenhouses set back some distance from the Dover Point Road (the location of the present Ponte Place development). This was a major producer of roses, with a national, even international, clientele. For a time there was a retail store, Thornwood, in the building now occupied by Patty B's restaurant.Bob and Barbara Drew had a small greenhouse on Tolend Road. There was Bob's Flower Shop, Robert Ham proprietor, at 2 Central Ave. In the mid-1940s, there was Brown's Flower Shop (Aaron and Ralph Brown, owners) at 107 Washington St., which advertised being open on Sunday morning.The Whatnot Flowers and Gifts was at 517 Central Ave., owned by Edward and Natalie Duffy, with "a full line of religious ...

Prince offered a ticket to a forbidden world in his music

NEW YORK – Prince didn’t introduce sexuality to music – unless you think the term rock ‘n’ roll is about a quarry – but his explicit playfulness and gender-bending winks took the intersection to a new level.
His songs so luxuriated in sensuality that a satirical item from The Onion that circulated after his death Thursday had the ring of truth: that Americans were too sad to pay homage the way he would have wanted, by enthusiastically having sex.
Simply picking up his third album in 1980 told you someone very different had arrived in the music world. Titled “Dirty Mind,” the front cover pictured him in a black thong. Inside, on songs like “Head,” ”Sister” and “Do it All Night,” he sang about incest, oral sex with a bride-to-be and much more.
If Prince was singing what was on his mind, well, he was a 21-year-old guy when he wrote the songs.
In an interview with Musician magazine in 1983, Prince talked of growing up too fast and living in the basement of a friend’s house when he was 16. He had too much freedom, but he was still young; what he wrote about was fantasy. “When I started writing, I cut myself off from relationships with women,” he said.
His breakthrough two years later... (Medicine Hat News)Apr 22, 2016
Daffodil days are here, but not for long
In the mid-1980’s, a group of business people planted hundreds of daffodils along Route 6A in Brewster to mark the beginning of spring. Out of that grew Brewster in Bloom, three days of free community events such as open art studios, band concerts, and a road race. Brewster in Bloom celebrates its 30th anniversary May 6-8.
