Historical Images: Many Buildings on the 800 Block of Asbury Avenue Pass Test of Time

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

This week's "Then and Now" features views of the 800 block of Asbury Avenue from the top of the Crown Bank building at Eighth Street and Asbury Avenue.

The first photo looks south at the bustling downtown in the late 1920s. The second photo shows the same view in August 2010.

You might notice a number of the buildings on the bay side of Asbury Avenue are still there today, as is the Transportation Center at 10th Street and Haven Avenue. In the distance, you see the expandable tanks. These were used for fuel storage when oil was refined on the island for various uses. 

To see more historical photos of Ocean City, visit the Ocean City Historical Museum located in the  at 1735 Simpson Ave.
