MV Obsession

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

Then And Now …


1984                      Ocean Park                                2010


1990’s                            Oak Bluffs wharf                                  2010


1980’s             Old Sculpin Gallery           2005


1980’s        Trinity Methodist Church – Campground      2010


1984                    Oak Bluffs                         2010


And then there’s this picture of Ocean Park in 1987… look closely at the house in the background to the right of the Bandstand…


…below is a close up although it’s a bit fuzzy.  That is the CORBIN-NORTON house before it was lovingly restored to…


…its original splendor by Peter Norton.  Twice !


The original restoration was finished in the 1990’s and then in Februay of 2001 it burned to the ground.


Like the Phoenix, it rose from the ashes and is again the grand dame of Ocean Park.

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 :)

  1. Great stuff, as always! Thanks for sharing!

  2. I love these before and afters! ….. and it looks like we are putting off our Vineyard trip, too much work right now on the farm. So, I’ll vacation vicariously through your photos.
