Kevin Woyce did and the result is this colorful tour of our coastal history, from the long-ago days of pirates, shipwrecks, and lighthouses to the founding of today’s most popular summer resorts. The slide show includes original photography of Jersey Shore plus vintage maps and images of historic people, places, and events.
