Could everyone write one simple essay about something that once happened in Saltaire…that they saw or were a part of…and put it on one big website? Somebody should collect a lot of stories before we all forget. Otherwise it is like a line in “On The Beach” : The history of the war that now would never be written.” -(JO'H)

A summer or two after the Poteats vacated Saltaire, one of Poteat kids visited Saltaire and stayed with the Navy Walk Weinlandts. Name 'em: __________________

What's my prize????!!!!!! LOL

How do I know so much?

This is Billy Poteat who has had tears in his eyes going through this magnificent blog and reliving so many memories of the '48 - '57 or '58 era. I have recently scanned about 80-100 pictures of those days from Mom's slides. I'll try to upload them soon.

Dad first came to Saltaire as the village Doc while he was finishing his residency at Methodist Hospital in Brooklyn and bought our cottage shortly after that.

Thanks for your efforts and this wonderful site. I have already shared and forwarded many of the info here on to my brother and sister.
