My favourite editorial this past year was about the history of tourism in the County. We called it, fancifully, “This Pleasured Isle, this Green and Storied Place,” (Aug. 10, 2023). We were trying to give a sense of summers long past. I asked Chris if we could do a Part II — more steamboats, more stories of picknicking in the grass, maybe some parasols.  “There isn’t any more,” he said. “After the steamboats, it’s all about the cars.”
