A Storm at Avalon
These photos were taken of a winter storm, known as a Northeaster, at Avalon
When I was a kid. I think this storm occurred around 1956, four years before the first
Breakwater was built on Casino Point. Later, a second jetty was built on the south side
of Avalon Bay, which eliminated the threat of such winter storms. My mother was the
First Female lifeguard on the island, and the beach where the photos of the wreckage
is is her beach, known as South Beach.
