Lovejoy Oysters: A Treat from the Deep

I was visiting Soundkeeper Terry Backer at his office on Edgewater Place in East Norwalk yesterday and while he took a phone call I snapped this photo, of an old oyster can from the Frederick P. Lovejoy Oyster Company.

One of the first times I visited Terry his office was in a different building on Edgewater, a rickety old oyster house -- no doubt the old Lovejoy house, because he showed me a sign that said essentially the same thing that the can says:

White Rock and Grassy Hammock Oysters

There are a couple of old posts about this, here.

By the way, given the reputation that oysters have as an aphrodisiac, isn't the name Lovejoy particularly great?
