1956..  Pocomoke City's Stephen Long Elementary School, a part of the Eastern Shore's African American heritage, was swept by fire on a cold Sunday afternoon in January.

1980..  It's a nationwide buzz among fans of the popular TV show Dallas.. Who Shot JR? 
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.
