None of these myriad people, memories, thoughts, pictures, stories and histories will ever be together under one roof at some big reunion anywhere. A blog like this is the only real chance for a Saltaire reunion of everybody who was ever interested in the place.
This is worth holding together.
But our hold on all this is tenuous. The couple of editors here are running out of their own ideas. This Blog needs your help and your input because we have no interest in perpetuating a blog about the editors' take on life at the beach -- that would be hoplessly boring, and there are already millions of narcissistic blogs out there that nobody reads: ("My Reflections on Life as a Nerd.com.") We want to hear from anyone who has anything at all to say about Saltaire. We don't need anything time consuming or expensive. Nothing eloquent-- an occasional thought or two-- or a picture. Tell us how you learned to swim or sail. These are the threads we need to stitch this blog together.
Let us know if you are reading us. We know we are getting a good number of "hits," but can't tell from whom-- we would love to hear from anyone and everyone. Just drop a line. Mention an old name. E mail an old photo. We are sure everybody would love to hear from you.
"Its so nice to meet an old friend
And pass the time of day
And talk about the home town
A million miles away
