the ferry Governor Emerson C. Harrington II departing Claiborne, an important terminal for cross-bay ferries in the twentieth century. Before the Chesapeake Bay Bridge opened in 1952, a system of ferries daily carried people, goods, and vehicles, connecting Annapolis to Claiborne, and later Sandy Point to Kent Island, with a shorter crossing from Romancoke on Kent Island to Claiborne. Emerson C. Harrington II served this shorter crossing. Photograph by H. Robins Hollyday, c. 1948, collection of Talbot Historical Society
