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)

Another Big Hit by Tommy Ho #22

Tommy Holton, #22 a Fantastic Photog and long a Bulkhead Bulwark, has yet another of his series on a NYC Family in Sunday's Times. Hard work (years and years) is paying off for one of New York's most renowned lensmen. If you don't know his work, and all you can recall is his fantastic fielding or heroic homers, check out Sunday's Times and these great links:
