Expanded, with an artistic color cover, improved reproductions, and newly discovered historic photos, this 30th Anniversary Edition is a fitting tribute to the legacy of John Bailey Lloyd.

In its pages you will travel back to Edwardian Beach Haven, discover the origins of Barnegat Lighthouse, and know the fortitude of the men of the U.S. Lifesaving Service. You'll experience nature’s fury — the hurricane of ’44 and the March northeaster of ’62 — and learn how the Island's shifting southern end has changed — with a “new inlet,” “old inlet,” and a disappeared Tucker’s Island.

In this loving history: Travel the first automobile highways to the Shore — or take the train to one of the grand old hotels. You’ll even learn the origin of that enduring phrase, “Six Miles At Sea.”
