MV Obsession

My obsession with Martha's Vineyard.. phototography..genealogy and life in general and this and that…

Some Names Have Been Changed …

In the back of a deep drawer in a desk sitting in a dark corner I found….this…

A 1985 MV phone book !!!!

How did that happen? I bring a lot of treasures home from the Vineyard but why a phone book!  I thumbed through it searching for names and places from the past and present. Some places have remained the same and some have changed their names.  Some are long gone and totally forgotten and others are still Island icons.

Icons …

Long gone…

The 1985 phone book had 80 white page listings and 146 yellow page listings… I wonder how that compares with the 2009 phone book !

I briefly thought about returning it but I’m not even sure where I was staying 22 years ago…and frankly it is a tad out of date.  So, to whoever I accidentally ‘borrowed’ this phone book from, I’m very, very sorry.

I'm married, I have two daughters and two grandchildren and they all love MV. Enjoy my MV blog and contact me if I can answer any questions. This blog started out as strictly about Martha's Vineyard but over the years I've branched out to include other obsessions and interests. I enjoy photography and like sharing my photos here as well. Hope you enjoy :)
