The snowstorm on March 1 and 2 kept the mystery picture editor at home, but here are the answers for the week of March 5.
Mel Warren of East Norwich called to identify the Feb. 26 mystery picture. "It's the new entrance of the parish hall at Christ Church," said the chair of the Oyster Festival arts and crafts show.
Roxanne DeMartino guessed it was the entrance to the mansion at LI Lutheran High School. It was an interesting answer.
Billy Minicozzi said they were doors going into a church. On a sports note he said: Tiger Woods is back on the green after knee replacement surgery. He is on the cover of
Sports Illustrated. Unfortunately, Tiger didn't win the game in Marana, Arizona. Tim Clark, South African won over Tiger at the World Golf Championship Accenture Match Play Championship, on Feb. 24. It was the first time Tiger played since he had knee surgery in June after winning the U.S. Open.
Billy added, "There's just a few more weeks and the baseball season starts."
As to the Feb. 5 mystery picture, Tom Kuehhas, Oyster Bay Historical Society director, knew the picture at first sighting. "That is Francis Roosevelt's painting of Laurelton Hall the day after the fire. The painting was recently on display at the prior show featuring dead Roosevelt artists. Currently we have the exihibit "Jane Bush and her Love Letters from Habana" on view. I have a leg up on everyone being that it is in our collection," he said.
Pat Power also called to identify the Feb. 5 mystery of the steps to the stage at Oyster Bay High School. It was good to hear from her.
