Description


Travel back in time to Edwardian Beach Haven, discover the origins of the Barnegat Lighthouse, and learn of the fortitude of the men of the U.S. Lifesaving Service. Experience the fury of the hurricane of ’44 and the March northeaster of ’62. See where bootleggers smuggled run into local speakeasies during Prohibition, feel the adventure of driving the first automobile highways to the Shore, and the thrill of riding over the first, wooden-plank causeway bridge. Even learn the origins of the phrase ”Six Miles At Sea.” This is the second in the series of three Long Beach Island pictorial books by John Bailey Lloyd, whose wonderful and pioneering writing has been the foundation for many recent books about the Jersey Shore.
