Pictures from Lockeport’s Past

I Love the history of Lockeport and all of the old pictures so I thought that I would post a few for those who enjoy them as much as I do. I’m not so sure if I have the caption correct on each of them but they are great pics to share with those are interested in our history. I love Lockeport! One way in and one way out and surrounded by water..gotta love that! The sea is in our blood. It’s easy to do my Art living so close to nature. 🙂
