About the Book
Not well known, but well loved by those who live here, our home is a small 70 mile long strip of land that stretches along the coast between Maryland's Eastern Shore and Virginia Beach. First explored in 1608, the Eastern Shore's Route 13 has become the I-95 alternative for those who travel from the northeastern states to Hampton Roads. But there is so much more to do once the main road is left behind for backroads and tranquil surroundings. From Assateague Island to the 17.5 mile long Chesapeake Bay-Bridge Tunnel, I hope you will join me for a journey around the Eastern Shore and enjoy these photos as much as I have enjoyed taking them.
80 pages filled with 173 of my best photographs through the years.
Mission Statement: The Wilhelm Gustloff Museum is an online non-profit museum dedicated to exhibiting memorabilia of historical value for public viewing and research benefit. By promoting and displaying such artifacts, they are prevented from falling into private collections where their history will be forgotten and be lost to the world. In an effort to increase public awareness about the Wilhelm Gustloff, I am currently publishing a four-part book series on her. The first two books have been published, and I am currently working on the third. Book 1 - Construction to Maiden Voyage August 4th, 1938 - April 20th, 1938. Book 2 - Maiden Voyage April 21st, 1938 - May 6th, 1938. Book 3 - Voyages May 7th, 1938 - August 26th, 1939. Book 4 - WWII to Sinking September 1st, 1939 - January 30th, 1945. Book 5 - The E.S. Robert Ley March 29th, 1938 - April 1947 (Tentative Title)
