Overview

Six Miles at Sea explores much of the history of the Jersey Shore by focusing on the barrier island of Long Beach. The shore of today may be strikingly different from that of a century ago, but it is those images of the past that cement our present day bond with the area. Modern-day shore lovers will find their long-ago counterparts here. Travel back in time to Edwardian Beach Haven; discover the origins of Barnegat Lighthouse; know the fortitude of the men of the U.S. Life Saving Service; see "demon rum" smuggled ashore into local speakeasies during Prohibition. Generously illustrated with historic photographs, old engravings and maps, this is a companion book to Eighteen Miles of History on Long Beach Island. 8/21/00
