The Time Machine is a weekly feature I've enjoyed researching and compiling on The Pocomoke Public Eye since 2011.  I have fond memories of growing up in Pocomoke City and welcome reader contributions we can share about things you've read, remember, or were told relating to our Pocomoke/Eastern shore area...a sentence, a paragraph, or more all fine. Just email it.

People assumed the bridge was held up by concrete pilings or supports because, well, because that's what it looks like.

When the bridge collapsed about 25 years ago everyone was startled to find the bridge was held up by common timber pilings and they had rotted to the point they should have collapsed 50 years ago.
