Described by G.G. Salisbury, Nantucket Post Cards, (East Greenwich, RI: Meridian, 1995) p. 10, as “Built in 1835, 18 Gardner Street was the home of Captain Robert Joy.”
This is actually the captains’ neighbor to the south, at #16 Gardner Street. Built in 1831 for master mariner, Captain Reuben F. Coffin. The door surround has pilasters and shuttered sidelights with a large decorative blind fan above. See the today/yesterday photo of 16 Gardner street. The porch has been changed to “friendship stairs”, but the door surrounds and fan have stayed with minimal alterations.
This is one of many H.Marshall Gardiner scenes of Nantucket doors and door ways.
