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.
