Vintage Delmarva | Wicomico County on Maryland's Eastern Shore

These are mostly of downtown Salisbury but there are a few cards which feature landmarks from nearby. The church is one I recently stopped to photograph so I will find and add those current images for comparison. The memorial has been a project to restore for some time and has a sign now posted where it stands just off 113.

This memorial is located across from where the Pep Boys auto shop stands today, sort of in the median where part of the street curves off to the right

Originally erected in 1950 as a war memorial, the Wicomico Youth & Civic Center is operated by Wicomico County, Maryland. Unfortunately, a fire ravaged the building in 1977, but it was opened again in 1980 after being rebuilt.
