Description - Wildwood's Neon Nights and Motel Memories by Robert O. Williams

Wildwood, New Jersey, is a seashore destination for adventure with thrilling rides, bright neon signs, fancy motels, and a good time. This book captures the Doo Wop architectural style and spirit that have defined the landscape and memories of this seaside resort. It is a trek through the decades (1960s to the present) that stops a dozen times at memorable places and with colorful people who have added significantly to the style, evolution, preservation, and restoration of this fun resort town. Meet neon sign makers, architects, builders, promoters, business leaders, and preservationists whose efforts have shaped the look of Wildwood, both in the past and today. 220 color photos feature Wildwood's motels, movie theaters, arcades, shops, restaurants, tram cars, boardwalk sights, neon signs, and every type of tourist you can imagine.
