Overview

For well over a century, the lure of scenic beaches and ocean waves has drawn visitors to the Jersey Shore. Presidents kept summer homes here to escape the pressures of office. Other visitors decided to stay, often building ornate, Victorian mansions that today are as much an intrinsic part of the area’s charm as the lighthouses that guided ships to safe harbors. With a selection of fine historic images from his best-selling book Historic Photos of Jersey Shore, Joe Czachowski provides a valuable and revealing historical retrospective on the growth and development of the area. Remembering Jersey Shore captures both the history and the magic of this unique section of America in rarely seen black-and-white photographs selected from local, state, and national collections and reproduced in vivid detail. Relive the days when the boardwalks were new and watch as wondrous seaside attractions rise to provide visitors a wealth of amusements. Join farmers as they harvest cranberries and blueberries. Set sail with the oyster fleets. Visit the military installations that protected this cherished shoreline. Experience the excitement and beauty that is the Jersey Shore.

Meet the Author

Joe Czachowski grew up in Newark, New Jersey, and attended Kean University, leaving after one year. He worked in Belleville, New Jersey, for 20 years in quality control before the company relocated. Upon receiving a grant to continue his education, he graduated in 2000 with a BA in history. Following his wife's passing, he returned to school and graduated in 2003 with a Master of Arts in liberal studies. He worked as a graduate assistant on an oral history project dealing with Vietnam veterans and used his interviews to make a documentary film as his thesis, titled "Vietnam; Much Confusion, the Search for Relief." Prior to graduation he was asked to teach, a policy usually not followed at the university. He has been an adjunct professor in the History Department ever since. He resides in New Jersey with his son Kevin, and his cat, Lacey.
