Cape May Point, New Jersey - Concrete ship S. S. Atlantus in background - Circa 1957

It was grounded off the point in June 1926. Most of it is gone by now. This was circa 1958. I have another photo showing the entire length. It was a popular tourist attraction while it lasted.

 

Note the sign on the prow for boat insurance. Someone had a droll sense of humor. :)

 

My mom and I in the foreground. I'm looking characteristically the moody teenager and holding a scary horseshoe crab. I was actually having a good time though, I loved the Jersey shore where we vacationed (from Pennsylvania) most every summer.
