Wish I Had Known
Wish I had known the town of Port Norris in it’s salt hay days.
To have been a photographer then, with the schooners coming
and going, what a sight that would have been. The small town
hustle and bustle with horses then trolley cars bringing folks into
town. I can only imagine those scenes from the photos of the
days gone by. Wish I had known it then...

Now What I Know
... Now I see a town with such a strong heart and folks working
together to help Port Norris, find it’s new self. A small town
with a new hustle and bustle and the mashes renewed, a
photographers dream. A view of the A.J. Meerwald when it is
docked and some business as usual with the watermen doing
what they have known.
I am enjoying getting to know Port Norris now. – Rachel Cobb
