The Cutchogue-New Suffolk Historical Council held its Back in Time Before ’49 antique car and fashion show on the Village Green in Cutchogue on Saturday.

Dozens of pre-1949 vehicles were on display alongside antique bicycles and children’s pedal cars. Volunteers and visitors in period costumes roamed the Village Green while a barbershop quartet performed and several brave fellows gave demonstrations on how to ride high wheeler bicycles.

The Old House, Wickham Farm House, and other historic buildings were open for free tours. Proceeds from the event will benefit the Historical Council.
