Wasn't that a mighty storm?

“I lived in Beachland from 1953-1968. I remember the day. It was in August of 62 or 63, and there had been a stupendous storm with much flooding. The person closest to-and looking at-the camera is Dave Dodge. Tom Wadsworth is behind him. The two young teen age girls in the background are Therese Freeman and either Moira Gambrill or Gwen Botten. The photo was taken on Windward Rd.”

      I have been looking at this picture for a while now (think similar one or same one is posted at the Pavilion) and I am wondering if it is printed backwards. Could be wrong but looks like our house (Clint-Denbow former Gambrill House) with awnings in the background with Ross’s house on the right. If park is behind, then houses should be on the left side as you face down the street. Not big deal, just really curious. Anyone else have

    I recall this event. I was five or six. Someone on Canterbury got out a canoe and for a brief time (30-40 minutes), we were “boating” on Canterbury. The media covered this as I recall.

    The “mighty storm” picture is priceless! Thanks, Bill, for identifying everyone. These are names which came up last weekend at our Beachland reunion. We were all lucky to have grown up in such a unique and wonderful neighborhood. I lived there from December of 1946 until college, eighteen years later.

    Does anyone know what happened to Merle Gambrill?
