О произведении:
This limited-edition, oversized volume features more than 200 color photographs of Spring Lake's Victorian era, a time of decorum and manners, grand hotels and magnificent mansions, and parasol strolls along the boardwalk.

Over three years in the making, each of "Spring Lake, Revisited's" images have been carefully preserved and digitally enhanced to reveal the ultimate view into Spring Lake's glorious past.

Author Patrick Smith (grandson of William Schreck, the one-time owner of The Sandpiper Hotel) presents his grandfather's collection of postcards and photographs with informative descriptions of each image that bring Spring Lake's past to life while revealing many details that are telling of the era. Smith's critical study of the photographs dissects the images as though they were paintings, pointing out all of the details and real life happenings of 100 years ago that reveal the humanity of the time.
