Photos from the Slade Dale Collection . . . The Emma C. Berry posted here celebrated her 150th birthday in 2016. She now resides at Mystic Seaport, a couple of miles from where she was built in 1866 in Noank, Connecticut. A book of photographs of Emma from the 1931-1941 is available on Amazon: Emma C. Berry in Photographs: the Slade Dale Collection, 1931-1941
The Rowboat was in storage for the month of January, not because of weather, but because I was not in residence. While February has been chilly here on Hilton Head Island, I have been on the water more days than not. Had a very pleasant excursion this morning and wanted to again start sharing some photos.
Had a good excursion on Skull Creek at low tide along Pinckney Island.
These are the old piling at the Skull Creek Marina.
I will be spending the month of January in the Keys and taking that opportunity to update my various Keys postings on my websites. I will also be giving up my site that is specific to this subject. That site was never fully developed, not from the lack of interest, but from the lack of time.
Another morning of fog… rowed in the opposite direction this morning along the local docks.
This morning was very still and a heavy fog laid over Skull Creek. I rowed up to the Skull Creek Marina and photographed the old section which is now just pilings sticking out of the water with pelicans perched here and there.
These photographs were taken around 1971 of the commuter train loop in Bay Head, NJ. This is where trains turned around for their return to North Jersey and New York City.
On November 10, 1932, the Barnegat Bay rose six feet and left much of Bay Head, New Jersey under water. The photograph displayed here was taken by Tupper, a professional photographer located in Lakewood. Tupper on occassion did work for Slade Dale, and I would appreciate any information that anyone can provide about him. Mr. Tupper appears to have been a very good photographer and I hope his work has been preserved somewhere.
This study is of the inside of Hunting Island Lighthouse. The photos are both looking up and down the spiral staircases inside the lighthouse. The photographs were originally taken digitally in color and converted to black and white.
