Spring Lake - 1947
A beautiful summer day in Spring Lake in 1947 and folks are strolling on the old traditional wooden boardwalk. Looming in the left hand corner of this photograph is the Essex and Sussex Hotel.
Today the "boardwalk" is composed almost completely of recycled plastic. The 1.8 mile commercial-free walkway is a favorite among joggers and those seeking a peaceful seaside promenade.
