Vintage Photo Friday
Atlantic City, New Jersey, 1920
Next week is Memorial Day, the start of summer for many of us. Vacations, the beach and great weather come to mind.
Above is a photo of my grandparents, my Uncle and my Dad on the beach in Atlantic City, 1920. My Grandma's parents owned a kosher hotel called The Majestic Hotel near the Boardwalk. The family spent a lot of summers in Atlantic City.
I was there in the late 1970's with my Mom and Dad. We walked to the location of the old Majestic Hotel. They were in the process of tearing it down that very day. My Dad climbed up the front porch steps and exclaimed, "When I was a kid, I thought this was the biggest veranda in the world. Now it looks tiny to me."
We call this "kid-vision." Everything seems bigger and grander when you're a kid.
Are you planning a vacation this summer? Where are you going?
