BeschreibungBradley Beach recounts the history of the popular summer resort that lies between Ocean Grove and Avon-by-the-Sea. Bradley Beach originated when two men visiting the shore one weekend in 1870 decided to build a town. By the early 1900s, it had become a destination for people from northern New Jersey and New York City. Vintage postcards-many of them rare-show the hotels and inns that issued a new series of cards for each new season; the restaurants that handed out cards to diners; and the beach, streets, and public buildings that beckoned visitors to come.
