Justin Zizes Jr. sent us this snapshot of the new village sign that sez you can ride your bike at night as long as you have a light.
Kathy Melton sent us this picture from the 1980's. No welcome in that sign either. Kind of makes you want to stay away. I guess we really had a serious problem with people picnicing on the public walks back then.
I don't have a picture of the dock sign but I do have one from the corner of West Walk and Lighthouse. It was probably taken in 1987.
Whatever happend to the Welcome sign to the village that listed " Men must wear tops over bathing suits" I believe put into place under Mayor Ludlow.Good trivia questions for the blogger editors- How many people served as Mayor and Trustees? Can you name the mayors? Trustees? Hugh, you might have to take a pass on this trivia-since you might know them all or have access to the source.
Ed note: Actually, the old Saltaire sign at the foot of the dock did not say "Men must wear tops over bathing suits." It said "topless bathing suits prohibited," and everyone knew it was directed at men since topless women would be unthinkable. The real trivia question is: According to legend, (which I am now creating) , what particular man in the village was the cause of the "Topless bathing suits prohibited " ordinance?
Signed by order of "Board Of Trustees, Village of Saltaire"
