Join us for an insightful, interactive, and light-hearted discussion that explores just what gets in the way of us being in the driver’s seats of our own lives. Too often, as Pogo said, “we have met the enemy and he is us!” We will explore topics such as temperament, stress, excuses, habits, and the real effects of aging. Excerpts from the books Treat Me, Not My Age by Mark Lachs M.D., Another Country by Mary Pipher, and The Power of Habit by Charles Duhigg will be referenced during the discussion.

EXHIBITION OPENING: Maritime Talbot County, Photographs by H. Robins Hollyday

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

Photographer H. Robins “Bob” Hollyday (1898-1981) documented Eastern Shore people and places from land, water, and air through much of the 20th century. Beginning in 1929, Hollyday teamed with Talbot County’s most well-known aviator, Malcolm Hathaway, to fly the skies over the county. Hollyday would hang out of the open cockpit plane with a large, cumbersome camera to take photographs. Hollyday photographed properties from the air for the area’s realtors, captured events for local business and society, and documented the region’s culture. His photographs reflect a distinct sense of place, and in Talbot County, which claims 600 miles of shoreline, that character is closely intertwined with the water. In these images, Hollyday documented the area’s waterborne transportation and recreation, waterside industry, and fisheries.
