Blogs are a great way to share local history and today another fascinating local one, Whimsical Tales and Honorable Tributes, just came to our attention. Robert Hazel, the author of a number of local histories and creative works focusing on Chesapeake City and Cecil County, has been producing the weblog since December 2011. On it we’ve found interesting pieces about early movie theaters; Triumph Industries; the rebuilding of the Chesapeake City Bridge, World War II Vets; creative works about the days of Uncle Ernest; and much more. Thanks Bob for sharing these interesting pieces.
