This week's "Then and Now" features views of Eighth Street as seen from from the top of the Crown Bank building at Eighth Street and Asbury Avenue.
The first photo looks east down Eighth Street toward the Boardwalk in the late 1920s. The second photo shows the same view in August 2010.
You might notice a number of the buildings on the north side of Eighth Street are still there today. The trolley you see was part of the Shore Fast Line, which ran over a bridge parallel to the Ninth Street causeway, through Somers Point, Linwood, Northfield, Pleasantville and into Atlantic City.
