“On 8/8/39, at Bay Shore Amusement Park, Cloris Wears was frozen in 3500 lbs of ice for 17 minutes, as part of the festivities for a Walkathon. (Afterwards, she spent more than 125 minutes in the restroom.)” —North Point State Park's “Fun Facts”
Carousel At Bay Shore Amusement Park, 1913
We went out to bay Shore one evening from Baltimore. “We” raise gooseberries and asparagus for the city market here at Woods. We just sent off three crates of asparagus this morning. About fifty pickers picked a thousand pounds of gooseberries last week.
Much love, Olivia.”
