Eighteen Miles of History on Long Beach Island
Two elegant companion books explore much of the history of the Jersey Shore by focusing on the barrier island of Long Beach. The Shore of today may be strikingly different from that of a century ago, but it is images of the past -- an innocent and wilder shore -- that cement our present-day bond with this place. Modern-day Shore lovers will find their long-ago counterparts here. Both hardcover books are generously illustrated with historic photographs, old engravings and maps, carefully reproduced from original prints as duotones and printed on rich matte stock. Both titles take us back to a unique place at the sea's edge and the people who came to know and love it. Together these two volumes give us an opportunity to rediscover this beautiful, sometimes dangerous, more personal coast. John Bailey Lloyd's wonderful and pioneering writing has been the foundation for many recent books about Jersey Shore history. Here is the source -- providing a true sense of place.
