  1. You are so on the nose Sonny, as soon as I saw it, brought back memories of my Mother packing a lunch and going down the street to the Beach.

  2. I learned how to swim at that beach. On hot summer days it was crowded with people looking for some relief from the heat. The water was ”brown” and little did most of know that the further south you traveled on the Atlantic coast the water turned to a pleasant aqua blue! That pier offered a challenge to me and many other young North Enders who would dare to jump from both the upper and lower decks. Thanks for sharing the photo and conjuring up some cherished memories.

    1. What a memory!!! To write, “Ditto! to all of the above” would be correct. Indulge us, as vivid images flash, whereas I’ll be a nonagenarian in a few years (much older than Vic) swimming with, against ‘life’s strong currents’ commenced in these peaceful waters. We are daring, DIVING off the ‘second pier; and venture far beyond. truly together and all watching out for each other. WoW! Who is there? Us preteen kids from the lowest part of Hanover Street: Mike & Joe Zarba, Sonny Fra, Joe Black, Angelo Moe Messina, Black Jack, & Parco Cassel.
      We are swimming past the girls pier, hard stroke past Coast Guard and Navy ships. The Boston Lighthouse glares before us. We are on our Odyssey… ‘growing-up’ living life. There is more, much more.

  3. No I don’t think it’s by pool it looks more by the waterfront
    Because on to your left there are buildings there were no buildings like that I don’t think
    By the waterfront yes buildings going into the ocean which are still there well some anyways
    And if I recall by the pool was there not a place to jump into the ocean you don’t see one in this picture
