AVALON, STONE HARBOR, AND MIRAMAR? Today we know that Avalon and Stone Harbor occupy the Seven Mile Beach, but the 48-page prospectus of the South Jersey Realty Company promoted the future of Stone Harbor and Miramar, “lying immediately southward.” It seems the South Jersey Realty Company intended to call the southernmost section of Seven Mile Beach “Miramar,” even referencing the lifesaving station which had already been built there (it still stands at what is now 117th Street.) The name “Miramar” was eventually dropped and the southern three miles of Seven Mile Beach became a part of Stone Harbor.
Does anyone know why (or when) the name “Miramar” was dropped?
This circa 1907 brochure from the South Jersey Realty Company promoted the development of Stone Harbor and Miramar, which was to be the southernmost section of Seven Mile Beach.
HUMPBACK WHALE SIGHTED: Passengers on the Cape May Lewes Ferry were delighted to sight a humpback whale aboard a recent Ferry trip. Other recent sightings include a bald eagle and osprey, while dolphins are regular visitors throughout the summer. Click here for a brief video of the humpback whale: https://www.facebook.com/
THE ‘YANKEE LADY’ paid a visit to the Naval Air Station Wildwood Museum this week. The World War II era B-17 bomber flew in to NASW for walk-through tours as well as paid rides. The B-17 is owned by the Yankee Air Museum of Michigan, and is one of about a dozen still flying. According to one fellow lucky enough to get a ride: “I have a new-found respect for those who flew and fought in them!” Even if you’re not going flying, NASW is worth a visit; its historic hangar houses a collection of vintage aircraft. On display you’ll find everything from a WWII era TBM Avenger to an F-14 Tomcat, plus interactive displays to entertain and educate kids and adults alike!
