Spell check, please

" settlement what ever OCCURD..." Hope they were better at pouring concrete than they were at spelling.

Hat Hair!

These ladies give new meaning to the phrase "hat hair" - nary a hat in sight except on the males!

Must have been a no hat day !!

Accustomed as I am to photos of this era and the preponderance of hats on both sexes, it seems odd to see six women hatless in this photo ! Also the gentleman by the lamppost left of center looks a bit shifty as well !

The Insignificant Sum

Capt. Young the proprietor is giving visitors and residents of Atlantic City the greatest array of Amusements this resort has ever attempted for the insignificant sum of ten cents. Incidentally, bear in mind, that after purchasing one admission ticket for ten cents the visitor to the Pier does not have to pay another cent for anything.

It's a big free show after one enters the gates.

Free Willy's ancestors

I'd be most interested in seeing the live whales.

Where's Cinderella?

I think we found her three sisters.
