Virginia Slutter called to identify last week’s mystery picture from Oct. 13. She said, “Last week’s picture was of the gravestones on the Christ Church property. They are in the front of the church outside of the building near the walkway. The other picture (Oct. 20) is the fireboat at the Oyster Festival.”
She is absolutely correct. Especially about the fireboat the John J. Harvey. The fireboat was spraying out water from their cannons on a regular basis. The photo was taken from across the new multi-playing field at TR Park.
Raynham Hall Museum was open on Saturday with their paranormal events. Theresa Skvarla said, “We did pretty well considering the weather. We had about 50 visitors.”
Belle Santora, called to identify the Oct. 20 picture in the Enterprise Pilot. She said. “I think I know the picture. It’s the Baptist cemetery on Orchard Street. I recognized the trees in the background.” The answer was no, it was not.
She said, “What else could it be. Not Fort Hill? Is it the Old cemetery off Pine Hollow Road? Well it’s a nice day. Enjoy it,” she said.
The purchase of the house has long been something we have been hearing about – it is wonderful to see that it has finally come about. It will be a great help to the museum as it tells the many wonderful stories it has to share.
“Wow, you really went ‘old school’ on this one,” said Christopher Benney of the Oct. 13 mystery picture in the Enterprise Pilot.
What is the year of this photo? Anyhow I think it’s taken from the southbound side of South street, down by where Snouder’s used to be. It’s amazing to see how much the town has developed.” Mr. Benny is correct. The photograph is from the collection of Oyster Bay Town Historian John Hammond and was taken at his slide show at Christ Church on Oct. 1 in celebration of the Oyster Bay-East Norwich Public Library’s 110 Anniversary.
But here are the big winners for 2011:
Paulette Gayle from Jamaica was the winner of the Oyster Eating Contest with 156 downed. Carlos Jaramillo came in second.
Theresa Varricchio called to identify the mystery picture in the Oct. 6 issue of the Enterprise Pilot. She said, “It’s the Oyster Bay Water District parking lot opposite Verrelli’s Market. She added, “My husband used to work there.”
The Varricchio name is big in plumbing in Oyster Bay!
Some Oyster Bay residents, not unlike the residents of Venice, Italy, (as told from the over 17 mystery books written by Donna Leon about Inspector Guido Brunetti – and available from the Oyster Bay-East Norwich Public Library) while the residents of Venice love the financial benefit of the tourists, they don’t love the crowds. [If you want to read her wonderful books that are a lesson in the beauty of Venice, start with Death at La Fenice.]
Belle Santora was looking at the Mystery Picture in the Sept. 29 issue of the Enterprise Pilot and saw the photo from the week before. “Look at those shiny shoes. The picture was really fun. [It was taken of the firefighters standing during the 9/11 ceremony at the Western Waterfront.]
“Now what this week’s picture looks like to me is that building at the Western Waterfront where they have the Christeen. That’s what I think it is. I’m so tired of being right. I’m 100 years – I should be right,” she said laughing.
This will not be the opening of the new multisport field, it was the only place in the township that Craig Pinto could use for his event, without displacing other teams already using the town’s sports locations.
