Unidentified Bangs Family and Friends

The Bangs Family assembled about 1905 at 448 Commercial Street. Will Bangs is standing at the center in the rear. The woman on the right might be his grandmother Rosilla Bangs. She was killed by a runaway steel cable car used to carry materials to the top of the hill when the Pilgrim Monument was being built.
Probably Jennie Jane Mackenzie Bangs. There is immigration paperwork on Ancestry.com that she and husband William Bangs had passports and traveled, including Italy in 1934.
Friends of Ruth Engels.
Ruth with two friends in her rear yard on Bangs Street. Ruth was a talented teacher. She graduated from Wellesley College in 1920 and taught in several towns including Wellesley, Dover, and Webster. She taught last in Glastonbury, CT. Taken about 1955. Photo is taken from west to east, showing the house across Bangs Street in the background.
A photo dated Sept. 12, 1912 showing two of the family sitting in the elaborate gazebo that was once in the yard of 448 Commercial Street. This must be the front yard, because of the angle. The building corner on the left is 448. The recessed building was 448a, now 2 Bangs St. The building in front is 452 Commercial St.
Will Bangs at the extreme right on the beach with friends. Will owned plumbing shop here (Provincetown) where Frank Hurst’s shop was – 191 Commercial St. https://buildingprovincetown.wordpress.com/2010/01/09/191-commercial-street/
