Miss Pat is Patricia (Phillips) Ferreira (b 1934), a longtime beautician; a daughter of John and Mary C. Phillips, who bought this property in 1917 for $900; and a sister of Manual George Phillips (d 2001), who owned the Silver Mink and the Coastal Acres Campgrounds. Her husband, Kenneth E. Ferreira (b 1932), is a barber. They’ve lived here at least since the 1960s. The beauty shop, pictured above, is a separate building on the lot. I’ll confess I don’t know whether the well head in the garden is functioning or ornamental. • Historic District Survey, main house • Historic District Survey, shop • Assessor’s Online Database ¶ Posted 2013-02-03

“We believe that the successful management and preservation of ecosystems depends on strong, detailed knowledge of species and their natural history,” declares the mission statement of the Provincetown Center for Coastal Studies, a registered 501(c)(3) charitable organization founded in 1975 by Charles Atkins “Stormy” Mayo III (b 1943; pictured); his wife, Barbara Shuler Mayo (1945-1988); and Graham Giese (b 1931), senior scientist at the center and oceanographer emeritus at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution. The coastal center’s headquarters are at 115 Bradford Street, but it is out on the waters of the Gulf of Maine — and here in this building — that its core work is done.

Samuel Janoplis, 300 Commercial Street, Provincetown (2009)-02“Welsh” is what it says on the gable end of this house — for Charles F. Welsh (b 1945), an assistant clerk of Orleans District Court, and Elizabeth P. Welsh (b 1953) — but old-timers will recall this as the home of Samuel S. Janoplis (b 1937). Janoplis — pictured here in a caricature by Jake Spencer — was the co-owner of the Mayflower Café, 300 Commercial Street, with his brother, Michael Janoplis Jr. The Welshes bought from the Janoplis family in 1988. • Assessor’s Online Database ¶ Posted 2013-02-03
