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)

Is it me or was the ball field much further up Neptune in the those days? The Catholic Church and water tower look awfully close to the field. Maybe it's just because there are so few houses...not sure.

Anyone know for sure?

Thanks.

Just less vegetation and buildings to block the view. Maybe the camera brought things in a little closer.
