Some people only saw the movie.  But many of us lived through the Perfect Storm, including photo contributor Dick Miller.  Here are a few of his images from the No Name Storm of 1991.

Thanks again, Dick, for letting me publish your photos.

If you have photos you'd like to contribute, please email me!

Any guesses?

It's Edward Palmer - then a co-owner of The Captain's House. It was taken in 1968 at Ridgevale Beach.

Thanks to Judith Hoyle, who contributed!
