Overview


Long Beach Island stretches for eighteen miles alongside the southern New Jersey mainland. A barrier island, it has a vivid history that includes wild game and bountiful fish, early whalers and tragic shipwrecks, paddle-wheel steamboats and grand hotels. With its rare and previously unpublished images, Long Beach Island portrays the unforgettable place that today is known for its white sandy beaches, fresh seafood, and bright red and white lighthouse. Shown are islanders engaged in pound fishing and salt hay harvesting, and, later, visitors crossing Barnegat Bay to the island resorts called Barnegat City and Beach Haven.

The outstanding images in Long Beach Island are from the collection of George C. Hartnett, whose family history on the island goes back almost one hundred years. They are woven together by the fascinating narrative of Kevin Hughes, also a longtime collector and writer. Long Beach Island is a perfect companion to Hughes's first Arcadia book, Barnegat: Life by the Bay.
