Check out these 2 awesome photos! One week I get photo #1 from reader Jim Costella and a week later photo #2 from Thelma Dalman. Both have deep roots in Felton.

    I believe the building on the far right in Piicture No. 2 is Hansens Market. One of the Hansen brothers was my uncle.

    Karen thank you SO much! I’ve heard that name Silvey many times. Thelma (De Wald) Dalman mentioned the name more than once when I interviewed her recently. I wish I had a photographic memory. It seems like a have a million little tidbits floating around in my brain but trying to put them together…May I ask your uncles first name? I’m trying to keep better track of who’s who 🙂 Do you have any old Felton photos you’d be willing to share?
