In this uniquely different look at Long Beach Island’s past, historic black and white photographs, meticulously hand-colored,are paired with fascinating historical descriptions, quotes, and short passages. We see anew the colorful characters, history, rich stories, and lost landmarks of a vibrant New Jersey Shore community. Blurring the lines between a fine art coffee-table book and a history, Local Color is like visiting a gallery exhibition. The images, combined with the text vignettes, carry the moods and feelings of a vanished world. New life is breathed into the moments and lives of the Island’s past and we enter a colorful world long gone.
