Boardwalk, Atlantic City

I love old black and white photographs and here's a reason why -

This is the Boardwalk in Atlantic City, New Jersey around 1925 - 1926, judging by the costumes. It was scanned from a film negative that measures 3.25 x 5.5 with a small margin around the edges. Touch up took about 1/2 hour because this was very clean to begin with. The building on the corner is Fralinger's Salt Water Taffy store at Arkansas Avenue and the Boardwalk. On the front of the building you can make out Steel Pier Block, which means this was very near the famous Steel Pier. Joseph Fralinger opened his store in 1885. Click on the image for a larger image.
