NOTE TO READERS: I AM ALWAYS INTERESTED IN OLD SNAPSHOTS OR OTHER MATERIALS WHICH SHOW ASPECTS OF SOUTH SHORE LIFE, ESPECIALLY AROUND THE 1950s AND 1960s. THERE ARE SEVERAL PLACES FOR WHICH I HAVE YET TO DISCOVER ANYTHING. IF YOU HAVE ANY WORTHWHILE OLD PHOTOS, I WOULD APPRECIATE RECEIVING A SCAN FROM YOU FOR POSTING ON THE SITE. YOU WILL BE CREDITED.
