Photo Album

Yesterday I uploaded another monthly Ocracoke Newsletter. It is a small assortment of old photographs that were in my cousin Blanche's collection. There are photos of the aftermath of the 1944 hurricane, an old post card showing the wreck of the Ghost Ship of the Outer Banks, a snapshot of the schooner Nomis hard aground offshore in 1935, a view of the center section of the Island Inn shortly after WWII, a photo of the Methodist Church soon after it was built, and two photos of the Wahab Village Hotel (now Blackbeard's Lodge).

I've added a short paragraph under each photo to help put them in historical perspective. I hope you enjoy the pictures. You can see them by clicking here:

    Thanks, Philip; great stuff there!

  2. I'm always fascinated with the ever changing nature of the island. These pictures were not taken THAT long ago, yet the character of the island is much changed both by man and nature.
