Enjoy a nostalgic tour around the Chesapeake Bay’s charming Talbot County, Maryland, via more than 255 vintage postcards and 25 contemporary photographs. Your tour begins in Oxford, where you can sail on the beautiful Tred Avon River, stroll along tree-lined Morris Street, and see Broad Creek as it once was. Ride the ferry across the river to St. Michaels and visit the downtown and harbor areas as they looked in the early 1900s. Your tour continues on to Claiborne to relive the drama of steamboats arriving from Baltimore, and to Tilghman Island for an intriguing look at charter fishing and oyster work boats of days past. There is more than enough to see, so choose a comfortable seat, let this book be your guide, and enjoy a delightful ride back in time to the Talbot County bayside of long ago.
