Historical Images: Bourse Building at Eighth and Asbury
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 Bourse Building, located on the northeast corner of Eighth Street and Asbury Avenue.
Built circa 1895, the building is shown in the first image in the early 1900s. It then was home to Frank Darby Real Estate, Maddock’s Pharmacy, and Hole in the Wall by the Sea Light Lunch with an entrance on Eighth Street. The Bourse Building later was home to the first national chain store in Ocean City: G.C Murphy’s 5 & 10, which opened circa 1930.
