Washington Historic Waterfront
Memories written by: John Boyd firstname.lastname@example.org ===================== I have enjoyed reading through the web page about Washington. My name is John Boyd, I now live in Marion, Ohio. I moved from Washington to Ohio in 1975. I attended school in Washington from 5th grade on graduated in 1960. My father ran a machine shop business on water street beside the ice plant. I spent much of my youth roaming along the water front. My mother still lives in Washington. She attended the nursing school at Taylor Hospital and can tell you all you ever wanted to know about the house on the corner of Main and Washington streets. Her name is Carol Boyd. Dean Parker is another person that went to school there and could tell you a lot about Medicine in Washington. Dr. John Taylor spanked my behind for the first time in the old Taylor hospital as he did most of the people of that time. He died in a fishing accident in Pamlico Sound. I remember Dudley's Market and crab, fish, and oyster boats at the city dock out back. Day's Seafood Market on Water Street. I worked there steaming crabs for the black ladies that picked them in the back. My dad's machine shop was next door and the Ice Plant which was right behind Harris Hardware Co. I am sure that someone has great stories about the Sugar Boats That used to unload at the Coastline Dock. Also the banana boats that used to unload. They used to come up from the "Indies" which I thought was some south seas island. We liked to watch the banana boat unload. They would have a gangplank in front and back of the boat and a steady stream of people carrying bunches of bananas off the boat. All would be good until a tarantula spider would show up, a snake would not have caused more commotion. This page has brought back a lot of old memories.
