Higgins Beach ~1910

A lot of changes from this 1910 scene to the present time!  It's easy to recognize where we are as many of the original cottages still exist.  The Breakers has lost its barn, and the little cottage beside it that we affectionately refer to as Mr. Irwin's has yet to appear.  We had lots of dune grass instead of a rock sea wall, and as a tall, skinney kid I could stand on the beach by Ocean Avenue and look "down" on the surface of Bayview Avenue!  Not any more!
