Visit the Ocean City, Maryland, that your grandparents visited. Historic photographs preserve images from the 1900s when bonneted women wore full-length dresses on the boardwalk. Then travel to the 1970s, when the crowds stopped at 38th Street. Aerial views help trace the island’s development from a remote Victorian seaside village to the advent of high-rise condos and resort hotels. Look back at the city’s long-favorite attractions: the Boardwalk and the Fishing Pier. See famous landmarks like the Atlantic Hotel and the Ocean City Life-Saving Station. Venture to nearby attractions at the Ocean Downs Raceway, Frontier Town, and Assateague Island. Pictures and text beautifully summarize the history of this popular summer vacation area.

Size: 11″ x 8 1/2″ | 200 postcard images | 112 pp
