Now and Then: Guest Returns To Pose On The Deck

BY DAWN | 29 September 2014

We were quite delighted to get the photo to the right (click to enlarge) from a great guy named Harry Perrone. Harry was a frequent guest at Vineyard Square Hotel & Suites years back in the mid-80s when the hotel was called the Colonial Inn.MV 1987 - 2014 b

Harry then stopped visiting Martha’s Vineyard for awhile (28 years to be exact!), but decided to visit again this summer. And – he brought the same t-shirt he was wearing in 1987.  “I love staying there. It’s in a great location with obvious beautiful views.  And I love Chesca’s restaurant just below.  I will try to stay again before the season ends and will return next summer as well,” he says.

Harry says he got the idea to do the “now and then” photo when he found the t-shirt in an old dresser (scheduled to go Good Will soon!) in the basement of his Mom’s house. He brought it to the island and the rest is history.

“As you can see, not much has changed over the years on Martha’s Vineyard except the railing (and my  gut!),” he says.

Thank you for staying again, Harry, and for your sense of humor. We look forward to your next visit.
