July 4th - 1912 Atlantic City


America's Playground specialized in conventions which brought the same groups to Atlantic City year after year.
During Independence Day Weekend in 1912 the Photographers Association of America held their 32 annual convention at the resort. This wonderful image shows the happy group posing with the impressive Steel Pier on our left and George Tilyou's magical Steeplechase Pier on our right.

Look like a beautiful day for an outing... It's a great photograph as well it should be considering the outing :) As with all of my posts just click on the photograph for a larger high-res image.
