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)

Perlberger's Pearls, Take 2



PERLBERGER'S PEARLS, TAKE 3


A DIFFERENT GENERATION, BUT LIFETIME SALTAIRIANS ALL THE SAME. NAME 'EM.
TELL US THE LADY'S FUNCTION WITH THE VILLAGE.


SAME RULES.

TRY TO GIVE US YOUR NAME INSTEAD OF "ANONYMOUS"

Jean Campbell sez:

That first photo is of Kitty and Frank Goggins - long time, and I do mean long-time residents of Saltaire. Their Coffey house on Neptune walk survived the 1938 hurricane. Frank was the unofficial historian (or was it official?) of Saltaire, and I believe Kitty served as the Village Clerk - after Mary B Keane??? Am I right on that one??Sorry to have missed the reunion. Sounds like it was a great time!

Patsy O'Shea adds:
Kitty Goggins, Village Historian and Frank Goggins, Village Attorney. Village Clerk was Mary B. Keane. I was her assistant. Kitty Goggins never was a village employee. Mary Keane followed Gloria Pasternak who hiked over daily from Seaview with her two dachshunds. Sometimes they yapped around my feet. One of our frequent visitors was Charlie Rich, Village Superintendent, with his cigar and another was Frank Goggins with his pipe.

JOH: Patsy O'Shea obviously learned a lot from being Mrs. Keane's assistant. Patsy ran the whole friggin' reunion from 3,000 miles away. Thanx Patsy, and thanx Mrs. Keane for doing a great job for a million years. Does anyone out there have a good picture of Mary Keane?


PERLBERGER'S PEARLS, TAKE 2

At the Reunion, we picked up a bunch of great pictures from Ralph Perlberger. Like Hank Stilgebauer and Bill Weinlandt before him, Ralph took the time to point his lens at Saltaire folks and save the images for posterity.

SAME RULES APPLY HERE: WE ARE NOT GONNA POST THE NEXT PERLBERGER PEARL UNTIL ALL THE KIDS IN THIS PHOTO ARE IDENTIFIED, AND WE GET A GOOD GUESS ON THE YEAR.

GOOD LUCK

Thanx, Jean. Actually, it was Mrs. Goggins who was the Official Village Historian. There have been three: Ruth Bryan Brewster Dobie, Kitty Goggins and now Liz Starkey. Frank Goggins was Village Attorney for about a thousand years. I don't believe Mrs. Goggins was ever Village Clerk.
