Images of Atlantic City Boardwalk from R.C. Maxwell. Photographs taken to give client's an idea of the traffic that would see their billboards, provide a record of the people who have thronged to the boardwalk since the early 1900's.

Keep this Wrigley's promotion away from Rove, mkay?
Wow, these are just amazing. Thanks, tellurian.

How does it feel to be the king of September 13?

That Andrew dude's site (from mathowie's uncommented-on seven-year-old singleton) is still semi-active, too. Weird.

Is my comment over-hyphenated? You can tell me, if it is. I'll be all right with it.

Those rolling chairs on the 1920's boardwalk: American rickshaws! Nice post.

I see in this picture that Walk a Crooked Mile and I Surrender Dear are playing. I also see that they are called photoplays. Is that what films were called until 1948?
