Mystery Plate Asks Where And When?



When James Metz of Beach 69th Street in Arverne passed away, his son, Bill, cleaned out his home and found this plate buried away in a closet. The front of the plate shows the Harbor Inn and is inscribed, “Rockaway Park N.Y. Edgett and Wheeler, Inc., Prop’s.” Can anybody tell us and Bill Metz where the Harbor Inn was located and what years it was in operation?

The rear of the plate shows that it was made in England by John Maddock & Sons for “J.R. Gibney New York.” The rear of the plate shows that it was made in England by John Maddock & Sons for “J.R. Gibney New York.”
