The Highlands has been a lively New Jersey coastalcommunity for nearly 150 years, and approaches withpride its official 1999 centennial. It is thus particularly timely that local author John P. King has brought to life the Highlands' rich past in this wonderful new book. The author has collected over 200 fascinating photographs ranging from the 1850s to the present day. These images carry us back to the Highlands of long ago, bringing us face to face with the people, places, and events which have shaped the Highlands over the decades. As we turn the pages, we will encounter tourists fromthe last century arriving by trolley, steamer, train, and auto; we will join local residents and visitors alike in enjoying seasons of summer fun over the decades; and we will remain behind with the year-round residents after the last September steamboat has departed, to share their dailyexperiences, whether at work or at play.
