(1944)

Delft Haven I Condominium.

A Provincetown paradox: the first Delft Haven colony, at 7 Commercial Street, is known today as Delft Haven II. The second Delft Haven colony, at this address, is known today as Delft Haven I. The complex was owned in the 1930s and ’40s by Ursula Tully Thompson (1912-1993) of Newton Highlands. At the time, the north end of the sprawling property was an old cranberry bog. The photograph is taken from a post card mailed in 1944 with the following caption on the back: “On the tip of Cape Cod, 10 Commercial Street, Provincetown, facing harbor. Cottages — Rental by season, month, or week. Electric kitchen — Continuous hot water. For rates apply Ursula Tully Thompson, 36 Aberdeen Street, Newton Highlands, Mass.” Thompson “disposed of her cottages” to Ralph Snow Carpenter, proprietor of Delft Haven, in 1945, according to The Advocate. The condo was created in 1977 by Ronald L. Rubinstein and Peter L. Boyle.
