Text last updated in 2015 | 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 of 151 Bradford Street were responsible for the marvelously unrestrained interior décor.

Alan Cancelino wrote on 30 January 2022: How did you get information on Capt. Caleb Lombard Rich? Was he the builder? My reply of 30 January 2022: Largely from David Lindstrom, who used to live at 151 Bradford.
