Virginia Slutter Knows Oyster Bay

Virginia Slutter recognized the mystery photograph in the Nov. 10 issue of the Enterprise Pilot. She said, “It’s the construction site and rent-a-fence with sandbags on it – at the entrance to Roosevelt Park. The booth is on the right hand side; and the construction vehicles are behind the rent-a-fence that is held down by the sand bags.”

She is correct!

Last week we attended a Kristallnacht service at the Oyster Bay Jewish Center. It commemorates that night when Nazi Germany authorized a night of criminal mischief against their Jewish population. Non-Jewish neighbors were encouraged to break the windows of their Jewish neighbors homes and businesses. It is a terrible event when you think of what that would mean if it were you and your own neighbors.

Somehow it is a lesson we have to keep learning considering the violence that happened last week in Brooklyn where swastikas were written on cars and benches and automobiles were burned. It appears the world has to be reminded of what happens when a country authorizes hatred against others.

Lots to Think About in the Mystery Picture

We got our answers to the Nov. 3 Mystery Picture in the Enterprise Pilot on the run – so to speak – at the Oyster Bay Historical Society Harvest Moon fundraiser on Saturday, Nov. 5.

Daniel Walker said, “Can I just tell you what the mystery picture is? It’s my brother Steve Walker and the Oyster Bay Community Band playing at the 9/11 ceremony in front of the Atlantic Steamer Marine Facility.”

Double Header for Virginia Slutter

Virginia Slutter called to identify last week’s mystery picture from Oct. 13. She said, “Last week’s picture was of the gravestones on the Christ Church property. They are in the front of the church outside of the building near the walkway. The other picture (Oct. 20) is the fireboat at the Oyster Festival.”

She is absolutely correct. Especially about the fireboat the John J. Harvey. The fireboat was spraying out water from their cannons on a regular basis. The photo was taken from across the new multi-playing field at TR Park.

Mystery Picture Remains a Mystery

Belle Santora, called to identify the Oct. 20 picture in the Enterprise Pilot. She said. “I think I know the picture. It’s the Baptist cemetery on Orchard Street. I recognized the trees in the background.” The answer was no, it was not.

She said, “What else could it be. Not Fort Hill? Is it the Old cemetery off Pine Hollow Road? Well it’s a nice day. Enjoy it,” she said.

We were delighted to hear that the Town of Oyster Bay purchased the house between the parking lot on West Main Street and the Raynham Hall property.

The purchase of the house has long been something we have been hearing about – it is wonderful to see that it has finally come about. It will be a great help to the museum as it tells the many wonderful stories it has to share.

Christopher Benny Knows Oyster Bay

“Wow, you really went ‘old school’ on this one,” said Christopher Benney of the Oct. 13 mystery picture in the Enterprise Pilot.

What is the year of this photo? Anyhow I think it’s taken from the southbound side of South street, down by where Snouder’s used to be. It’s amazing to see how much the town has developed.” Mr. Benny is correct. The photograph is from the collection of Oyster Bay Town Historian John Hammond and was taken at his slide show at Christ Church on Oct. 1 in celebration of the Oyster Bay-East Norwich Public Library’s 110 Anniversary.
