The following aerial images were extracted from a photograph that was provided to me by Dr. Floyd Moreland of the Magical Carousel Shoppe on the Boardwalk. The photo is a very special historical document. I’ve dated the photo to approximately 1915-1920. It’s possible, if not likely, that the photo was taken by a passing blimp stationed at Cape May and possibly even Lakehurst. If you magnify the image you will see awesome detail of the town at a very early time in its history. The town north of Hancock Avenue was nothing more than mosquito infested marshland and sand dunes. The bay met the town on the southwest at Porter Avenue and on the west side of town along Bay Avenue. You should be able to magnify this set of photos at least once before the photos become a blur of pixels. I added street names as a reference.
