Paddle Steamer Hotel

The structure of that hotel is reminiscent of the big paddle steamers, with the full-length double deck verandas, the tall cupolas taking the place of the smokestacks, and the staircased portico at the side standing in for the paddle wheel. I wonder if this was deliberate imitation.

Monopolists

Atlantic City, home of the famous Boardwalk. I wonder if they passed "Go."

Vacationing Victorians

Oh how I love this photo! Most everything during this time is beautiful, the homes, hotel and the very lovely ladies. I wish I could stroll this street right now. I was born in the wrong time. Sigh.
