Click on over to my “Down the Shore with Jen” blog for an interview with James Lilliefors, author of America’s Boardwalks: From Coney Island to California. It’s a fascinating book about, obviously, boardwalks, and it’s one of the better interviews I’ve had on the shore blog so far. Here’s a direct link.
Important note: while this book is big and glossy with beautiful pictures, it is not just a photo book. Lilliefors put together amazing histories of these boardwalks, and why they matter and how they change. I used it in researching The Jersey Shore, Atlantic City through Cape May: A Complete Guide and recommend it to anyone with a taste for shore history.
