For most, summers on the New Jersey shore were replete with warm, sandy days at the beach and cool, breezy nights at arcades on the boardwalk. Manasquan, with its quaint, tree-lined streets and hometown flavor, offered much more. To its visitors, who came from New York, Philadelphia, and everywhere in between, Manasquan was the quintessential seaside resort. To its residents, the town has always been the perfect place to live, work, and play. Manasquan Revisited, the second volume of Manasquan's photographic history, delightfully captures more rare moments from the past of this historic town. From shops along Main Street, to tours of Victorian homes, to the boats and docks along the Glimmer Glass, it is easy to see that Manasquan is a tranquil corner of yesterday's way of life. However, history can be dangerous as seen in the photographs of the famous hurricanes and northeasters of 1938, 1944, and 1962. The mighty Atlantic Ocean, in calmer moments, also provided a livelihood for the town's sea captains during the prosperous Victorian era. These and many more memories come alive through two hundred beautiful photographs and Mary Ware's interesting narrative.
