Overview

Explore the first seventy-five years of Ocean City, New Jersey's grand history through this postcard pictorial. History comes alive with over 250 beautiful black and white and hand-tinted photos of the beaches, the strand, and many places of play and worship in this much-loved city. Bounded on the east by the Atlantic Ocean and the west by the inland waters of Great Egg Harbor Bay, Ocean City's location, only sixty-five miles from Philadelphia, has made it a popular summer playground ever since its founding as a Christian seaside resort in 1879. The city has come to be a vibrant community of full-time residents as well as loyal summer vacationers. This book illustrates the city's many entertainments, including the serenity and natural beauty that first drew its founders.
