Welcome to History Notes, our weekly feature that looks back through Egg Harbor Township history. Each week we get a chance to learn or reminisce courtesy of Lynn Wood of the Greate Egg Harbour Township Historical Society, who shares early photos of places in Egg Harbor Township with our readers online and in print.
This picture is from the wedding reception of Joyce and Jim Pullan, seated in the upper right corner, Nov. 9, 1948 at the Log Restaurant on the Black Horse Pike in the West Atlantic City section of the township. The restaurant was owned by Joyce’s family, the Hamptons. It went through many renovations through the years and no longer stands, but remains as a fond memory to those who dined there.
The GEHTHS will present “Trolley Cars in Atlantic City” 7 p.m. Friday, April 7 in the Community Center, 5045 English Creek Ave. Anthony Marino will give a presentation on how Atlantic City trolley systems stimulated regional mobility. The presentation includes a video. Admission is $2 for adults and free for GEHTHS members and students.
