Bob Hope and AC

When Atlantic City was America's Playground all of the major stars visited.

Publicity was the name of the game as it is today and in this vintage image a very young Bob Hope playfully challenges the regulation that men must wear bathing tops on Atlantic City beaches. 

Great piece of nostalgia.

  1. Wow! I would like to see that sign posted today with a few minor changes. Change "men" to "All" and "beaches" to "boardwalks"! And, at all beaches, not just A.C.
