Last Wednesday George Hurley gave a talk to the lower Delmarva Genealogical Society (LDGS) on "The History Of Ocean City." It was a highly entertaining talk. Two items that stood out from many interesting topics were these; Each high rise Condo in Ocean City has a higher appraised tax value than the entire town of Snow Hill. Second, in the 1930's when the government was trying to give everyone a job they would pay 35 cents for a filled quart mason jar of dead mosquitoes - he had a filled jar there for an example.

I like to look at yearbooks and there are many on-line. I am amazed at the political incorrectness of those early ones. This is from the 1904 Western Maryland college year book the "Aloha", which WM digital yearbooks can be found here http://hoover.mcdaniel.edu/archon/?p=collections/findingaid&id=68&q=&rootcontentid=4432
