Study of Capt. Caleb Rich, by Charles Hawthorne.

One of Charles Hawthorne’s Selectmen of Provincetown was Capt. Caleb Lombard Rich, who lived here. Capt. Ferdinand “Fred” Salvador registered the deed on this Second Empire-style house on 15 February 1944, evidently intending it as a birthday present for his wife, Philomena Valentine (Cordeiro) Salvador, who was born on Valentine’s Day. Born in Olhao, Portugal, Salvador was a leading fisherman from the 1920s through the ’70s. With his brother, Louis, who abutted him on 11 Johnson, he operated Shirley & Roland and Stella. He skippered C. R. & M., named for his children, Carol Ann (Salvador) Silva, Richard, and Michael; and Michael Ann, which was still working in 2007 as Chico-Jess. Later owners were responsible for the marvelously unrestrained interior décor.
