Description - Historic Photos of Jersey Shore by Joe Czachowski

For well over a century, the lure of scenic beaches and ocean waves have drawn visitors to the Jersey Shore. Presidents had summer homes where they could 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. Historic Photos of Jersey Shore captures both the history and the magic of this unique section of America, utilizing rarely seen, striking, black-and-white photographs selected from local, state and national collections. Relive the days when the boardwalks were new and watch as wondrous seaside attractions rise to provide visitors with a wealth of amusements. Stroll the shaded streets of small towns where year-round residents call the Shore home. Join farm workers as they harvest cranberries and blueberries. Set sail with the oyster fleets. Witness the devastation of Atlantic storms and visit the military installations that protected this cherished shoreline. Experience the excitement and beauty that is the Jersey Shore.
