Talbot Historical Society Project Rewind: Looking for Some Wind


This beautiful Talbot Historical Society H. Robins Hollyday Collection glass negative image was featured in “ National Geographic” Magazine’s September 1939 issue. The database information also identifies the sailing background location as being Ferry Neck. It was most likely an Oxford, Maryland Tred Avon Yacht Club racing event. The Tred Avon Yacht Club was established in 1931. Such a peaceful scene! Definitely the calm before the storm!
