From Rich:

“Ross Pavilion beach area———lots of beachers and bathers in their attire in the early 1900’s.

Editor’s Note:  There once was a pier as part of the Ross Pavilion which was a private bathing facility  built in the late 1800’s. The North End pier was destroyed in a storm in the 1930’s and never rebuilt.  The Ross Pavilion had some concessions and an auditorium and a  bandstand. Later the North End Hotel ( 1911-1978) was built.  There was also a South End pavilion —-PG

CARLY SIMON :       from her album  Into White    Stephen  Foster wrote Oh Susannah in 1848,  It was one of the most popular songs ever written, and it was probably played at the Ross Pavilion.

Hi Paul:

This wonderful image at the northern end of Ocean Grove is from a post card taken at the Ross Pavilion in 1907 showing a number of ladies gathered in front of the bookstore in their Victorian Dresses.  Close inspection of the reading material shows a few shelves with hard back covers, and perhaps the shop owner, noticeable on the left side of the scene, peers out over pamphlets and other soft covered reading material with prices ranging from two indian head pennies to one Morgan Dollar and change.

In addition to a few shops there was a pavilion that would assist residents and visitors with their bathing needs and access to the beach.  There also was an open air auditorium with a bandstand for live music.
