not so bad

I think the Asbury Park Boardwalk does not look bad on your picture! It looks like as if the pavement is made from wood? The little wooden house is nice too and there is no traffic.

Details

What is the scene on that sand pail the woman in the foreground is carrying? At first I thought it was a container of Häagen-Dazs.

Then and Now

Just for comparison, girls on the beach 1905 and girls on the beach 100 years later...

Not Much to Look at Today

Sad to say, the Asbury Park Boardwalk and Beach isn't the fantastic destination for the wealthy and famous it once was.
