Railroad Station View

In order to get your bearing in this view and other Seaside Heights Railroad Station postcards and photos, remember that the Pennsylvania Railroad laid the tracks on the west side of this building. So, in this postcard  the camera lens is pointed east between Sumner Avenue (on the left) and Webster Avenue (on the right). A Dugan Bros. delivery truck is parked on the north side of the station.  Dugan Bros. – “Bakers for the Home” – sold their cakes, pies, and bread in New Jersey and Pennsylvania.

  1. Back in the ’70’s, I recall this building in use as a first aid station. Is it still there ?

    • Community Memorial Hospital (Community Medical Center today) operated a hospital annex there, but I’m going to say that was in the 1980s. The Cocci family operated a restaurant there in the 1970s. There’s a separate post here somewhere with a photo scanned from a newspaper showing the restaurant and Butch Cocci in the kitchen.
