Ocean County’s View Of The World In Cartoon Form [50 Memories in 50 Days]
As we continue to dig through the WOBM archives to give you a view into Ocean County's past as we prepare for our 50th birthday on March 1st, this fantastic piece of art turned up:
Titled "Ocean County's View of the World", there is some amazing detail in this 1983 piece. Our Chief Engineer Tom Trembly put it perfectly when he said that it's, "...the type of thing you really have to stare at for half an hour to fully appreciate".
Obviously, photos can only do it so much justice, but here are some zoomed in details.
With WOBM keeping an eye over Ocean County (anchored to Lakehurst, naturally), Six Flags Great Adventure and the WOBM tower can be seen here, with Philadelphia at the other end of the New Jersey Turnpike.
Toms River and Brick on the mainland, and the barrier island from Casino Pier in Seaside Heights to Jenkinson's in Point Pleasant Beach are the centerpieces here:
From Seaside Park's Funtown Pier to Old Barney and Long Beach Island, the tail end of Ocean County stretches down the Garden State Parkway to Atlantic City.
And my personal favorite part:
Indeed we are, and proud of it!
Again, it's only possible to get across a small taste of the amazing detail, creativity, and humor in this outstanding piece of art from the WOBM archives.
