Well, I guess it was inevitable that I would find a typographical error in my book (thankfully a minor one). Ugh! That’s right…there is a reference in the top view on page 92 incorrectly identifying the Coast Guard Life Saving building as Station No. 9 when it should have stated Station No. 109. I must have lost the “1” and “0” during the editing process and just never picked it up despite proofreading the book at least a dozen times. Anyway, I’d like to mention here that Andrew J. Jackson and D. Gail Anderson provide an excellent history of the Toms River lifesaving service in their 1998 book Sea Side Park, Memories & Remembrances. They noted that the building was originally known as Station No. 13 but was later changed to Station No. 109.
