Author and photographer Kevin Woyce takes readers on a guided tour of Jersey Shore history--from the distant past of pirates and shipwrecks through the golden years of your favorite summer resorts, the Roaring 20s, the Space Age 50s, and right up to today. Find out how some of our shore towns got their unusual names; why there is an elephant-shaped building on the beach in Margate; who the guy with the grin was in Asbury Park; and much more.
Illustrated throughout with more than three dozen original black and white photographs of Jersey Shore lighthouses, boardwalks, and historic landmarks.
