I stumbled upon this YouTube video this morning. The footage is from someone’s personal 8mm home movie collection and was shot at the beach in Seaside Heights. It shows the old lifeguard boat, “Miss Seaside,” patrolling the ocean and there’s film of a Navy blimp flying low over the ocean toward the Casino Pier. This is a must watch video and is worth the 2:41 minutes of your life! (7/11/11) Note: Ken, whose father shot this film, sent me an e-mail today to let me know that the footage was actually taken in 1962, not 1961. It is awesome nonetheless!
