Annapolis, Maryland, Skipjacks in this Chesapeake Harbor

These photos of Annapolis, Maryland from the 1930s show the classic skipjack oyster fleet. The dome of the Maryland State Capital Building and the United States Navel Academy can be seen in the background of some of the photos. The photos were taken by F. Slade Dale on one of his Emma C. Berry cruises. The Berry is now moored at the Mystic Seaport Museum located in Mystic, Connecticut.

Sandwich Man by John Van Horn

I am presently working on a series of photos from the English Town Auction in New Jersey, which I took in the early 1970s. The first photo I have worked with is “Sandwich Man”. I intend to post some more photos in the form of Ken Burns type movies here and on You Tube as well as starting work on including these photos on my new website . Prints are available at:
