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)

This is at the , er, first fitting for the big reunion on September 6. This exclusive photo was taken by our on the spot photographer in 1957 or so. It seems the girls were at a Jones Beach Marine Theater production of Show Boat. That is not captain Al, nor is it Capt. Kangaroo, in the background. Could it be Bob Moses himself? Or could it be Guy Lombardo? Any guesses? Denny Dwyer tells us that the girls in the picture include: Denny Dwyer, Merry Ahern, Susie Fitzgerald, Jeannie Connelly ?, Marsha Clay, ?, Uncle Pete's daughter, ?,?.

Welcome back, the Dwyer family. All Saltairians miss you guys.

Help us with the names. Click "comments" below.
