Compare this postcard of Long Beach from around 1925 with this one from circa 1936. The coloring and perspective are similar, and both are from the same publisher, E.C. McIntire of Gloucester. In the postcard above, note that there was not yet the seawall that today separates the cottages from the ocean. Apart from that, little has changed.
