A Week of Pictures

I know how much our readers enjoy photographs, so I've decided to take this week to share one vintage Ocracoke photo each day. I won't add much commentary. I hope you enjoy this pictorial journey back in time.

This is Amasa Fulcher, founder and owner of the Community Store. The store originally faced Cockle Creek (Silver Lake Harbor). A sandy foot path passed between the store and the water. The porch became a popular gathering place for island men who sat on benches whittling small birds, sharing jokes, and talking about the weather.
