Zooming In On Westport

One of the last places realtors take prospective home buyers is Town Hall.

It should be one of the first.

At least, while Larry Untermeyer’s “Zoom in on Westport” photo exhibit is up.

Last summer and fall, Larry was a frequent flyer in Chuck Tanner’s Cessna 182.  The result:  stunning aerial photos of town, now hanging on the wall just around the corner from the auditorium.

Larry captured Westport in all our verdant and leafy glory.  The beach, Longshore, downtown, Staples — it’s all there, from a perspective you’ve never seen before.

Larry’s photos show how amazing our town is.  How small downtown is.  How much open space remains.  Who knew?

The photos hung, until recently, at the Westport Historical Society.  At Town Hall, they’re even more accessible.

Unless, that is, all those realtors and home buyers won’t let you near.

    The photo in the top row, 2nd from left breaks my heart. The river is disappearing, quickly being replaced by sediment. It doesn’t take low tide to see the effects anymore, either! Can you find out what the town, parks & rec (they pride themselves on the river views, but don’t take care of the river) & state government can do about this?

    This is a neat feature and a must see in town hall.
    Thanks for the nice invocation at the RTM meeting last night.
