Just In Case...

Here on Delmarva we never know for sure how Mother Nature will treat us, regardless of the forecast. If it should turn out that we'll be dealing with a wintry scenario remember to take extra care if you're on our roadways.

TIME MACHINE: 1938, 1905, 1914, 2004, 1955, 1889.

September, 1938

Footnote:This was the era before automatic pin setters when "pin boys" set the pins. Newspaper articles in the early 1940's reported on competition in an eight team Pocomoke bowling league at Bunting's. The Peninsula Building was located near the foot of Market Street at the northeast corner of Market and Front Streets. A 1935 newspaper article concerning the garage/auto dealership building across the street (now the Delmarva Discovery Center building) made mention of a section of that building having been used as "a pool and bowling parlor" for a short period of time.

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.
