Historical Images: 47th and Central After '62 Storm
Our weekly feature includes photographs from the Ocean City Historical Museum collection and from the modern era.
This week's "Then and Now" features the view looking south down Central Avenue from 47th Street.
The first image shows destroyed beachfront homes in the 4700 block of Central Avenue and was taken following the infamous nor'easter that struck March 6 to 8, 1962.
The second image shows the same block as it appears today.
The Ocean City Historical Museum will host "Ocean City Natives Night—Were You There?" to discuss the 50th anniversary of Storm of '62 at 7 p.m. March 8 at the Ocean City Free Public Library. Please join us with your photos and stories from the storm!
