Historical Images: Beach Road and East Atlantic Blvd.

A weekly feature includes photographs from the Ocean City Historical Museum collection and from the modern era.

This week's "Then and Now" features the intersecton of Beach Road and East Atlantic Boulevard in the Garden's neighborhood of Ocean City.

The first image was taken following the hurricane in September 1944 from a lookout tower that was on the beach. Note the sand in the streets from the dunes that were destroyed. 

The second picture shows the home as it still appears after Hurricane Irene struck. The home sold last year for more than $4 million.

Do any of your reporters have photos and archival material of the Motel Cardinal Court and the Meadowedge Restaurant? My parents took us there until they became "renters." Great memories of family vacations at The Shore. Some photos and reportage would be good.
