26 Montello Street

26 Montello Street, Provincetown (2012), by David W. Dunlap.At the turn of the 20th century, the fisherman John Patrick owned this and the adjacent property at 28 Montello Street. It was the home for many years of a laborer named Manuel Souza (b ±1885) — it should be noted that in 1950 there were nine other men named Manuel Souza in town — and his wife Georgianna Souza (b ±1889). They were married in 1908 and celebrated their 50th anniversary while living here. The party was held at the Bonnie Doone, 35 Bradford Street. Their children included Manuel Souza Jr., who married Celia Mae Francis in 1934; and Hilda Mae Souza, who married Warren Cabral in 1937. • Assessor’s Online Database ¶ Posted 2013-05-11
