Lifeboat #2

Yes AC had them, but they were used throughout the shore to Cape May, they were first used as early as 1848, and many required more than one man, Asbury Park clearly had one man boats: mVSeiyHGXp

Lifeboat

Atlantic City life guards are known for using lifeboats. They have been using them for over 100 years. I can see a lifeboat in the center of the photo so that makes me believe it's Atlantic City.

Asbury Park

The girl on left has an "AP" on her suit. Could that be Asbury Park? The Atlantic City beaches tended to be much more crowded.
