Ocean City: 1950-1980 by Fred Miller

Ocean City: 1950-1980 illustrates the growth and change of this seashore community founded in 1879 by a group of Methodist ministers. The venture was an immediate success, and the area quickly grew into a prosperous year-round community and a bustling summer resort. The Great Depression and World War II slowed this development, but by the beginning of the 1950s, the burgeoning economy and optimism in the country again encouraged people to enjoy family vacations. With the wide beaches, scenic boardwalk, three new major highways, and comfortable family atmosphere, Ocean City became a superb family destination.
