The "Water Ways: Mid-Atlantic Maritime Communities" on-line exhibition is made up of many stories of the people who live on or near the water. These stories are told through written explanations, through photographs of people and places, and through audio clips and video clips that allow you to hear the voices of coastal residents.

You can "build your own maritime story" using the instructions provided here. The story can be as simple as a single photograph with a caption. Or, they can be as in-depth as the sample stories and photographs collected and assembled by Harold Anderson.

Every picture tells a story!
