The image below was from a 1920 aerial Survey of the New Jersey Coastline. You can see the Barnegat Lighthouse with the Keeper’s house.

Below and to the left of the lighthouse at about the 7 O’clock position, on the oceanfront, is most likely the Oceanic Hotel. 

If you look at the 11 O’clock position from the lighthouse, you can see a large building that is most likely the Sunset Hotel. 

The Barnegat Light Museum has memorabilia from the Oceanic and Sunset Hotels. 

The original images are available at the Army Corps of Engineers site
