Atlantic City - 100 years ago

Atlantic City boardwalk - 100 years ago
Here are some vintage photos of Atlantic City, as seen in these two historic photos of 100 years ago. People strolling about in long dresses, men in top hats, and of course no bathing suits, no bikinis, hardly anyone sun-bathing or swimming.

Some men and boys are seen wearing shirts and long Bermuda shorts, with just about their ankles and below their knees visible. Things have certainly changed over the years, but at least people can still walk on the boardwalk, which was partly damaged last year during Hurricane Sandy in October.
