About the Photos

Our holdings include hundreds of glass and film negatives/transparencies that we've scanned ourselves; in addition, many other photos on this site were extracted from reference images (high-resolution tiffs) in the Library of Congress research archive. (To query the database click here.) They are adjusted, restored and reworked by your webmaster in accordance with his aesthetic sensibilities before being downsized and turned into the jpegs you see here. All of these images (including "derivative works") are protected by copyright laws of the United States and other jurisdictions and may not be sold, reproduced or otherwise used for commercial purposes without permission.

The hotel

I would say it is definitely the Traymore.

Any Idea What Hotel That Is?

It looks like one of those pictured in the many early 1900's shots of Atlantic City we see here on Shorpy.

Both Lots Full

Even the donkey lot is full.

Maybe we should have driven the Packard

The Cadillacs get in, but when the Buick shows up, the lot is full. I can hear the driver now.

Times have changed!

Nowadays he'd be holding up a different finger to the parking attendant.

It's free now

Today no one would pay to park near the Boardwalk, because if there's one universal thing about gambling casinos it's that they have free parking.
