Vintage Atlantic City
As an odd coincidence, I found this postcard from 1947 a few weeks ago, just as hurricane Sandy was pummeling Atlantic City and the entire Eastern seaboard.
The fate of the Boardwalk has been much publicized. The boardwalk was washed away down to its piers. Years of family memories and history has been lost.
A cursory search across the web tells me the Ambassador Hotel was renovated to become the Tropicana Hotel. Some reports have said that many of the piers have survived with some damage.
