Celebrating the Jersey Shore 1764-1955 with author Margaret Buchholz enlightens contemporary shore lovers with fascinating historical perspective. A presentation with readings and historic photographs, etchings and fine-art images will be shown. This program begins with adventure travel in 1764 when the shore (and much of New Jersey) was still a wild frontier. It concludes in 1955 with the opening of the Garden State Parkway, which brought exponentially more visitors - and rapid development- to the Jersey Shore. The lecture is based on two of the author's books, "Shore Chronicles" and "Josephine, From Washington Working Girl to Fisherman's Wife".
