This is a Parlin Color real photo postcard of Cadillac ambulances that were in the inventory of Tri-Boro First Aid Squad. These units served Seaside Park, Seaside Heights, Island Beach, Ortley Beach and Pelican Island. The same photo appears in black and white format in “Sea Side Park, Memories & Remembrances,” published in 1998 by Seaside Park native Andrew J. Anderson (one of my Facebook friends) and his mother Gail Anderson. Their book includes an excellent history of Tri-Boro First Aid Squad. I was fortunate to acquire my signed copy of the book (#584 of 2000 copies) at a collectible show. Andrew also authored in the same year a vintage photo history book of Seaside Park through Arcadia Publishing.
