Historical Views of the Rockaways
Old-fashioned bathing lines have been installed for local beachgoers, and they can be counted using only the fingers on one hand!
Judging by the marine growth on the pilings, from which the safety lines are suspended, it is low tide - with little wind and slight wave action! The location for the photo, as stated in a land sale advertisement of the time, was Beach 145 Street.
