CRANFORD—Have you ever wondered why there is an elephant-shaped building on the beach in Margate? A concrete ship stuck in the sand off Cape May Point? A town named Loveladies? Or Ship Bottom?
Regional historian Kevin Woyce did, and the result is his colorful tour of New Jersey’s coastal history, from the days of pirates, shipwrecks, and lighthouses, to the founding of today’s most popular summer resorts. Woyce will present his program on Wednesday, May 22, at 7:30 p.m. in the Cranford Community Center, 220 Walnut Avenue.
The slide show includes Mr. Woyce’s original photography of Jersey Shore lighthouses, amusement parks, boardwalks, and hotels, plus vintage maps and images of historic people, places, and events. Admission is free and all are welcome. The program is sponsored by the Friends of the Cranford Public Library.
