Jon Crispin's Notebook

Oysters / Tilghman Packing Company

Posted in ephemera, History, Landscape, Nature, Weather by joncrispin on 21/02/2014

I had fun today photographing models of boats at the Tilghman Waterman’s Museum, as well as a great collection of oyster cans that Mark  Sadler brought in.  I really liked the typeface on this can, and the utensil on top was designed to open the can and then spoon out the oysters.

It rained very hard in the afternoon (tornado warnings for a bit) and then it cleared.  Around sunset, more clouds came in and the light was beautiful.  This shot was taken just off Bar Neck Road.  When the tide is high and the wind is coming from the south, the road is often underwater.  It has been a very wet winter on the island. / Ham and oyster dinner at the church tomorrow night and then into DC to see Peter.

    Looks great. Remind me to tell you about the role oysters played in the Beyer family
