Beach Days In The 1940's
Susan Petrilik of Ocean Avenue dug this 1949 photo out of her family files an provided it to us. Note the presence of dune grass among the much smaller rocks than we have today. The landmark cottage in the background at 1 Ocean Avenue was owned at that time by Dorothy Caskey who then sold it to George and Barbara Jodrie in 1997. The Jodrie's sold the home to Brad and Sue Thompson in 2002. We installed our Higgins Beach web cam on that second floor front porch not long after.
