Lots to Think About in the Mystery Picture

We got our answers to the Nov. 3 Mystery Picture in the Enterprise Pilot on the run – so to speak – at the Oyster Bay Historical Society Harvest Moon fundraiser on Saturday, Nov. 5.

Daniel Walker said, “Can I just tell you what the mystery picture is? It’s my brother Steve Walker and the Oyster Bay Community Band playing at the 9/11 ceremony in front of the Atlantic Steamer Marine Facility.”

Double Header for Virginia Slutter

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.

Mystery Picture Remains a Mystery

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.

We were delighted to hear that the Town of Oyster Bay purchased the house between the parking lot on West Main Street and the Raynham Hall property.

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.

Christopher Benny Knows Oyster Bay

“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.

The Oyster Festival has several contests for people to win, but the real winners are the community of Oyster Bay and the recipient of the funds raised that go to various charities. The Lions for instance work to benefit the blind and that includes donating to VetsDogs that provide guide dogs to wounded veterans.

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.

This last weekend we visited Beekman Beach twice, as did many other local residents. It was as if they were getting use of the waterfront area this week, before the Oyster Festival takes it all over on Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 15 and 16 from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.

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.]
