Ocean City boardwalk in 1919. on both resorts (especially Ocean City) a sort of urbanized skyline. The city had come to the beach. The social milieu changed as radically as the physical landscape in the half century following World War I. Mobs of day visitors crowded the boardwalks and jammed the nearby pizza parlors, bars and shooting galleries. The bathing suits of the 1970s and 1980s would have shocked the guests of the 1910 era, as they left little to the imagination. The lobbies of the modern hotels, dominated by the registration desk and the comings and goings of guests, hamper the type of socialization found in the front parlors and verandahs of bygone days. Tourists still f lock to the Delmarva beaches, where Mother Nature provides velvety sands, grassy dunes, fresh air and, of course, â€œthe best surf on the Atlantic coast!â€?
