Former Oyster Bay Town Councilman Tom Hogan, Esq., identified the mystery mystery photo from the March 29 issue of the Enterprise Pilot. It was an especially hard mystery photograph and he vowed to identify it in last week’s column.
He called to say, “This is Tom Hogan. The past week’s mystery picture is the air vent and clean out for the septic system of 24 Audrey Avenue.” Now there is a man who knows his architecture. He is responsible for several wonderful buildings in Locust Valley on Birch Hill Road, near the rail road crossing.
Billy Minicozzi recognized the April 5 mystery picture as being taken at Oyster Bay Harbor. On a sports note, he is happy that baseball is back in the picture.
The Phantom Mystery caller called to identify the photograph in the April 5 issue. He said, “It’s the memorial on the Western Waterfront.”
He is even more correct.
Wonderful 100-plus years old, Belle Santora called to identify the April 5 mystery picture. She began by saying, “I’m not sure of the picture but I wanted to wish you a Happy Easter.” Then she guessed at the picture and said, “It’s the memorial on West End Avenue. That was my first thought. And there is Centre Island across the way.”
The photograph was taken after the annual 9/11 Memorial service at the Western Waterfront. The small still life was set up by visitors to the service and was so touching, it seemed deserving of being preserved.
You’ve all done very well, for which we are grateful!
