Talbot Historical Society Project Rewind: Looking for a House on Dover Street

Whatever happened to this home probably did not go as planned! Perhaps a fire but more likely a demolition? The Talbot Historical Society H. Robins Hollyday Collection data states the photo was taken of a house next to the Sunoco Station at the intersection of Dover and Aurora Streets in Easton. Wonder if that home is still there?

Talbot Historical Society Project Rewind: Checking Out a Skipjack

This Talbot Historical Society H. Robins Hollyday Collection photo identifies this as the “William Wesley”. A google search site, R. C. Groups.com, states this is a Chesapeake Bay round bottomed oyster boat. Maybe our Facebook Skipjack experts can confirm that this is a forerunner to the Chesapeake Bay Skipjack or if it is a Skipjack?
