Today’s Top 5


This foto has an unrealness about it. It looks kind of wopsided, especially the building with the clothes line.

Very well preserved!

Same view, from the air:

Neat As A Pin

No trash or fast food leavings are on this street while every day I go outside to pick up the stuff dropped by slobs in front of my home on Long Island.

I'm worried about the gap in the clothes line however. Great Uncle Ernie lived in Marblehead back then and I fear that a set of lady's bloomers might be missing.

A Marblehead Too Far

Too bad that Marblehead is an eight-hour drive from my house. Based on these old photos, and the present-day view, it would be a wonderful place to visit.

I may just decide to go regardless of the lengthy drive; what the heck!!!
