TIME MACHINE Preview ... Accomac County's 1906 Sensation!

It was called the Red Devil. It was the first time a resident of Onancock "indulged in the luxury of owning an auto." But the sensation it created was not all favorable. Some were apprehensive. "... the trade of the village merchants fell off, because the country people were afraid to venture into town."

Much more about it in the full Washington Post article from 1906..this Sunday on The Pocomoke Public Eye!

Do you have a local memory to share with PPE readers.. such as a big snow storm, a favorite school teacher, a local happening, something of interest your parents or grandparents told you about? It can be just a line or two or more if you wish. Your name won't be used unless you ask that it be. Send to and watch for it on a future TIME MACHINE posting!
