Steel Pier, Atlantic City - 1953

Lots of stuff going on here - I especially like the fact Louis Prima is here (In fact in three places). I first heard him when I was a kid in the movie "The Jungle Book" as the ape that sang "I Wanna Be Like You!". I still to this day like his voice and chops. I wonder what happened to the High Diving Horses? Anyway the whole Americana beach experience in Jersey sure looks different than Florida's!
