MASTIC BEACH PIONEERS
These photos came to me via my niece Mrs. Dawn Pack of Augusta, Maine. Dawn's maternal family goes way back on the Beach and here are a few gems. Perhaps someone out there can help with the ID's
PAUL SCHULTE's TAVERN
The oldest and most famous tavern in The Beach was Paul Schulte's which he established in 1932. These photos look to be taken in the 1940's.
Schulte's which has been featured before on this website was a true family tavern and gathering spot as can be seen by these photos. That is Tess Azzatto in the foreground and her husband Sal diagonally across from her. They ran a tavern on the east side of Town most know as The Sand Bar. Also seated at the table are Fannie & Carmine Cardamone who ran Fannies Spaghetti House and later on Fannies Bowling Alley. Anyone out there know the rest of these folks?
I know these folks.... On the left is Walter Ury one of the original Real Estate Salesman of the Home Guardian Co. Walter set up his own office alongside of Fishers Market. Behind him is Carl Abel and on the other side are Carl's parents, May and Captain Andy Abel.

Don't know what the occassion was but gathered here are: Seated: Mrs . McKenna, _another Fire House face___? , ______? Mary Eppig / Standing: Anna Mae Gilewski (the lady who had these photos of Knapp's Mansion) and wife of Fire Chief Mike who was in charge the day it burned. Mrs. Philip Coyle (Tommy's mother) Eva Landau (Steve and Peggy's mom) Carrie Bloomquist, Tess Azzato
The young girl is Pat Heslin who I went to William Floyd School with. Pat lost her battle with cancer in 1991. Not sure who the woman is with her but she certainly looks like a MB pioneer.
