TIME MACHINE: The Resiliant Pocomoke City Of 1922!


Our Little Corner In Space And Time   





(Reader-friendly viewing of news archives/historical archives material)


Truly amazing was Pocomoke City's immediate refusal to yield to the adversity it was dealt.  Within hours of the historic devastating fire of 1922, town leaders were planning recovery.

TIME MACHINE: 25 Years Ago Pocomoke City Takes Stock And Contemplates The Future.

A note to The Pocomoke Public Eye readers.

Six years ago I was invited to be a contributor to the Pocomoke Public Eye and I've thoroughly enjoyed sharing items stemming from my interest in searching archives of old newspapers.

Unfortunately, circumstances of the past few years have left The Pocomoke Public Eye without the services of PPE founder Tom Ayers, and the late Brenda Wise (JMMB) who worked so diligently and enthusiastically every day to keep things informative and interesting.

I hope to continue with my weekly "Time Machine" postings and other occasional fill-ins but The Pocomoke Public Eye could be immensely enhanced with the help of more contributors.

Can you or someone you know contribute on an occasional or regular basis?  Items can be brief, lengthy, or in-between. All subjects in good taste are welcomed.. Community News and Happenings, Sports, Fishing, Politics, Music, Gardening, Entertainment, Health, Technology, Science, Food & Cooking, Hobbies, Recollections, Opinions,  etc.,etc.

Thank you for considering and for spreading the word to others.
