The Story of Oceanside

Images of America: Oceanside
by Richard Woods
"...is a close look at a community whose history begins with the history of Long Island. Captured in these images is the south shore town that was once one of the largest oyster-producing communities in the world. It is a place that, over the years, has attracted farmers, baymen, middle-class families, and millionaires... Richard Woods, who grew up in Oceanside and has taught and coached here for more than two decades,...selected stunning photographs from library archives, the school district, and private collections. He combined these images, dating from the late 1800s to the 1960s, with historical detail, a touch of wit, and much warmth..." This beautifully-done tribute is a must-have for anyone who ever called Oceanside home! 128 pages. Published by Arcadia.
