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)

Coming to

Saltaire38 Exclusive:
In His Own Write:

The 1954 Saltaire Polio epidemic as described by the then Mayor John Ludlow.

Saltaire 38 has obtained the handwritten text of a speech given by Mayor John Ludlow in the Fall of 1954 to a mainland organization explaining the polio epidemic from his persepctive as mayor. This may be the only contemporay account of one of the most significant events in Saltaire history. A moving, gripping and inspiring story told by a man right in the middle of it.

The story will be posted next week. Watch for it.

Only on
