Nick & Bob’s Clam Bar

This photo, which was used in a real estate guide in the late 1950s and early 1960s, shows Nick & Bob’s Clam Bar on the Boardwalk near Porter Avenue.  I know a “Nick and Bob (Dionisio)” operating a similar business on the Boardwalk today known as Park Seafood (located at the south end of Funtown).  Coincidence? Hardly!  Update:  Nick confirmed for me that this was, indeed, his grandfather Nick’s and his father Bob’s clam bar. Bob was a teenager when the elder Nick helped set him up in business on the Boardwalk. The family also owned a restaurant on the north end at Casino Pier named “Mrs. D.”  Park Seafood celebrates three generations of the Dionisio family owning and operating food establishments on the Boardwalk.
