These two photos of the Historic Weekend
parade were submitted by Adam.
I'm originally from North Bass Island, however
I married and moved away. My Dad, Dale Burris,
still lives there and I took the photo the last time
I was out to visit. I find it a very peaceful photo
even though the lake was a bit rough that day.
This and the following photo, submitted
by Carl Rees, view the sunrise over
My wife Jackie and I spend a lot of time at
Put-In-Bay during the summer and frequently
stay aboard our boat in the harbor. A few
years ago, I happened to catch this dramatic
and colorful sunrise photo from our boat.
I was born and raised on Catawba Island
72 years ago and recently came across
this old picture of PIB in the 50's. Both
Chuck and I are 1950 Port Clinton High
graduates. He was just out of the USN
and I from the USAF when this was taken.
Ann Fisher, the young lady pictured here,
was an Ohio State University student
working at the Cresent Hotel that summer.
We spent most weekends crossing from
Catawba in that 12 foot boat. The 50's was
a wonderful time to have visited Put in Bay.

North Bass Chapel - built in 1898, it is one of the
newer buildings to be constructed on North Bass.
The stained glass was done to celebrate the grape
culture and other windows are done with grape
vines and white wine glasses - a very pretty little
place. Robin Burris-Cadez
Carol and John - Wanted to share with you how
awesome my art looks on the wall thanks to your
photographic talent! Thank you again - I love it!

Monument which he appropiately titled,
Andrew Markley submitted this photo he took from
the rear of the Jet Express.
Helen Guiley of Odessa, Texas sent this photo of the
Lemmer house, circa 1920. A photo of the house as
it looks today is on the Put-in-Bay Architecture page.
On my first trip to Put In Bay in 2005 I
took hundreds of pictures. This is one
that I thought was unique and a good
conversation piece. Bob Bertsch
This is a photo of our house on Airline Drive, near
the Put-in-Bay airport. The "control tower" is used
to entertain our island guest and offers a great view.
My husband Jon and I just recently spent our
honeymoon at Put-in-Bay and took these photos
of the sun set. It looked like the moon was very
close to the sun although it was probably just a
reflection of the sun in the camera.

Benson Ford ship house. My first Lake

I recently picked up an old novelty photo postcard dated 1923
from Put-in-Bay. I don't have any further information beyond
what is shown in the photo - the postcard was never mailed
so there are no notations on the back.
