About this product
Originally published August 3, 1969, in The Philadelphia Inquirer. This photo was taken in the year 1900, perhaps earlier, and restored for a glass plate credited to photographer Jack E. Boucher.
Original text from the 1969 article titled “What’s to Become of Lucy?” written by William J. Speers:
Lucy was the golden gleam in the eye of Philadelphia entrepreneur James V. Lafferty who in 1882 had the preposterous notion that the New Jersey shore could become a summer resort. He needed an attraction, so he designed and built a mammoth pachyderm in South Atlantic City, now Margate.
Through the 1900s Lucy served variously as an entertainment center, a summer home, a hotel, and a dance hall. Tours of her generous body, which houses 11 rooms, were conducted. Visitors would have their pictures taken, waving from one of her 22 windows. Without her, Margate was just another Jersey beach.
