A catch of the day from the 1940’s in North Beach Haven.
The Spice It Up Deli is located in Bay Village. One thing that caught my eye was a Sandwich Called “The Morrow Castle”. The Morrow Castle was a cruise ship that burned on the way from Cuba to the US.
The Pearl Street Market offers coffee, slushies, prepared meals, sandwiches and breakfast.
The Beach Haven Public Library is a small library and a museum.

This is a 14′ wooden outboard with a 20 HP Mercury Engine. This was shot probably in the early 1970’s.
In my late teens, I purchased a small sailboat from a neighbor. However, because of a bad design of the joint between the hull and he deck, it had a nasty tendency to take on water.
The Ketch has a long history with Long Beach Island. Today it is a restaurant and a night club with teen nights.
The Acme was one of the hottest bars on LBI during the 1970’s.
The Ketch was once the Acme Hotel, Bar and Restaurant. During it’s heyday it was a favorite of celebrities such as Babe Ruth. It was also allegedly a speakeasy during prohibition. When the revenuers were on their way, the stash of not so legal booze could be dropped into the bay.
