Old Lifeguard Headquarters

There are many reasons why I love this postcard…first – the old lifeguard headquarters on Sumner Ave. and memories of the great lifeguard teams led by Capt. John Boyd and Capt. Hugh “Junie” Boyd…second – if you magnify this view with your mouse you can see how Ocean Terrace ended at the Casino Pier building forcing traffic to turn left…third – memories of the Bluebird beach attendants…and lastly, the beach is packed with people!

  1. Junie Boyd was also principal and sixth grade teacher of what later became the school named after him. He held these positions concurrently.

    • He was a very caring person. I remember him calling me out of class numerous times every year down to his office. He’d encourage me to continue to study hard so that I could go to college. Taught me how important education is.
