WOWZERS!  Thanks, Dave!
   

Fred Field ('45) of CA sure gave us an insight as to the history of the ferry slip located at the foot of Manteo Avenue
in Hampton. He mentioned that it was relocated to the
Small Boat Harbor in Newport News.

To refresh your memory, this is the ferry slip that was used to transport cars and people to Norfolk before the Hampton Roads
Bridge Tunnel was constructed. I made mention of this location in reference to the basketball teams of the mid '50s traveling
to Norfolk for games.

Ferry 'Cross The Mersey

- Gerry Marsden

(Gerry
and The Pacemakers)

Life goes on day after day
Hearts torn in every way

So ferry 'cross the Mersey
'cause this land's the place I love
and here I'll stay

People they rush everywhere
Each with their own secret care

So ferry 'cross the Mersey
and always take me there
The place I love

People around every corner
They seem to smile and say
We don't care what your name is boy
We'll never turn you away

So I'll continue to say
Here I always will stay

So ferry 'cross the Mersey
'cause this land's the place I love
and here I'll stay
and here I'll stay
Here I'll stay
