Description - Yesterday on the Chesapeake Bay by James Tigner
The story of the Chesapeake Bay is told through 466 vintage postcards and other ephemera. See the Bay our forefathers knew and recall, days before there were bridges. Travel by steamboat between Baltimore and Norfolk; go to bathing beaches in Maryland, (like Bay Shore Park, Tolchester Beach, and Betterton); then continue south on the Bay and visit Colonial Beach, Buckroe Beach, and Ocean View in Virginia. Ride the ferryboats of yesteryear and cruise to quiet harbors and busy ports. See the Bay's lighthouses, riverboats, old wharfs, and piers; view shipbuilding and commercial fishing as they were. You will surely want to revisit this book again and again.
