Ocean City is among the nation's most popular

vacation destinations. Founded in 1879, it has evolved from a Christian-oriented summer resort to a

year-round community that mirrors the many facets of America's diversity. The area's wide, sandy beaches and lively boardwalk continue to attract thousands of

visitors each year. Ocean City, New Jersey Volume II uncovers many more vintage photographs of the town's

seaside attractions and features rare scenes of the

community, its politics, the impact of World War II, and the unusual events that have become the hallmark of parades and celebrations held here. From Martin Z. Mollusk to the Miss Miscellaneous Contest, Ocean City has had a long and animated history of offbeat traditions.
