Ok. Also have some captions for some of them from what is written on the back of some of the pictures. The guy with the straw hat is Clarence Wolf who was the owner of NJ Silica Sand Co and had the idea to create the Holly Farm. Pretty sure he died in 1966.

I attempted to rotate all the photos i took with my phone. If this photo is good then I will continue to upload them in this manner so let me know. If not I will send them to Manumuskin and he will fix them so they are appropriate to upload.

Here are some the aerials. Note you can see the Maurice river and the Manumuskin as well as schooner landing rd being the main road into the sand plant. Port Cumberland rd is seen in the distance before Whibco was present. You can see where schooner landing continues past where rt55 is now. I would have to confirm with some other aerial maps of different years. Again most of this is dated 1937 on the back of the photos. There is another trail that seems to go to Barth road? At this time all of the water is on the north side of the railroad tracks.

The aerials are Dallin Aerial Services birds-eye photos. They are also available in the Hagley Digital Collection. (The Hagley might be interested in scanning your album--the original Martha Diary is also deposited there.)

I like the little dredge with the shanty on it, and attached pipeline. You can see a similar apparatus dredging coal fines from a dam pool on the Susquehanna River here: https://unchartedlancaster.com/2020...of-black-diamond-dredging-on-the-susquehanna/
