This photo below is from a 1965-1966 booklet promoting Hyde County mainland and Ocracoke Island. (Follow the directions to the right to enlarge the image.)
Our most recent Ocracoke Newsletter is a compilation of humorous stories told by or about islanders. You can read it here: http://www.villagecraftsmen.com/news092113.htm.
