Cool history in this thread!

 

 

The reason for the rope going out in the water was for the ladies to hold onto, kinda hard to swim with those big heavy outfits they then called bathing suits

This picture is from Asbury park but shows the swimming rope

There's a pole like that in the sand behind Breakwater in Long Branch, to the right when you come out of that public walkway from Ocean Ave.

 

Is that what it was originally for?

That would make it over 100 years old - I kinda doubt it

Probably a pole used for the modern way of using ropes to mark off the bathing section

which side of 35? I remember when it was on the site of the 7/11. There was a swimming rope in Clifwood Beach too. In those days people from Newark called the bayshore their beach.

The pirate ship in Cliffwood beach was Tom Cahill real estate. It did sit on the site of the 7-11 before it got moved to the other side of 35.

Does anyone remember the Cat and the Fiddle in Cilffwood Beach? They had a salt water pool there. Lot of guys probably fish there and do not know it was a night club wsy back when.
