City on the sand, Ocean City, Maryland, and the people who built it

Creator: Mary Corddry | History - 1991-10

Traces the history and development of the resort community of Ocean City, Maryland, from its beginning in 1875 to present concerns over the effects of development on the area's ecology

Publisher: Tidewater Pub

About this book
In a little more than a hundred years, a desolate barrier island in Maryland became a teeming resort city. The story of how that feat was achieved is the heart of Mary Corddry's absorbing book. It is also the tale of opposites: the special affection thousands of Marylanders have for this unique place and the growing concern over the dune and marsh ecology and the effect of high density development on it.Here is a narrative of shifting sands and shifting fortunes, recounting how Ocean City has weathered natural and economic setbacks to become, every summer, Maryland's second-largest city.

Ocean City, Going Down the Ocean

Creator: Michael Morgan | History - 2011

In this fascinating series of vignettes, Morgan recalls readers to warm Maryland summers long past. Book jacket.

Publisher: The History Press

About this book
Going Down the Ocean, A Brief History of Ocean City, Maryland will chronicle the long and colorful history of Maryland's premier ocean resort. Beginning with the visit of the explorer Giovanni da Verrazano, this book will examine the arrival of Asssateague's famous ponies, visits by Blackbeard and other pirates, the birth of Steven Decatur, and brave soldiers who fought in the Civil War. After Ocean City was founded in the late 19th century, the resort became a mecca for vacationers, who enjoyed the surf and sand along side the pound fishermen who worked their nets a short distance off shore. During the 20th century, Ocean City witnessed the arrival of the automobile, bootleggers, and German submarines. Following the Second World War, Bobby Baker, confidant to Lyndon Johnson, built a motel on the barren dunes to the north and helped ignite the condominium boom that saw Ocean City grow all the way to the Delaware line.

    Ocean City Memories

    5/5 Charles Smith - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Ocean City, Vol. 1 (Images of America: Maryland) (Paperback) We absolutely loved Ocean City Vol. 1. We received Ocean City Vol. 2 as a Christmas present and couldn't wait to read and enjoy Vol. 1 even though we read them backwards. We have been travelling to Ocean City most of our lives and have wonderful memories. My maiden name was Dashiell whose family owned one of the original hotels before my father was born. I remember him speaking of the ownership and was horribly disappointed when he learned his family was somewhat shortsighted and had practically given the property away. I think Ocean City, Maryland is part of my DNA and wish we could visit more often even during less than perfect beach weather. I think anyone who has virtually any interest in history and enjoys the beach would enjoy reminiscing through reading the book.

    This book will take you and your child back in time but has a message for today!

    5/5 Ann Clarke, children's book author (Florida/Barbados) - See all my reviews This review is from: The Sand Lady: An Ocean City Maryland Tale (Schiffer Book) (Hardcover) Everything at the beach is covered in this book from 'The Sand Lady'. She knows her stuff! The concern for the natural world and the years gone by are both present in this gem. It is just a treat to read and brings alive the old time spirit of a day by the sea. I spent many a day on that Ocean City boardwalk! There is plenty to learn and more to see in the lovely illustrations. A wonderful book for a child headed on a beach vacation or just dreaming of one!
