These two photos were sent to us by David Barr. David says - "That is me, David Barr and my mother, Elaine Barr. They are dated October 1967. Our family would go down and stay for a week or two with "Aunt" Bertha and "Aunt" Shashee (Estelle)." On Winthrop Rd.
The following photos were given to us by The Heffelfingers of Webster. The
photos were given to them by Bettie Doyle Diamond. As a child she vacationed in Strathmere with her family, and stayed
on Webster, in the house that would later be owned by the Heffelfingers. The 3 photos were taken after the hurricane that
devastated Strathmere in 1944. Two ladies gingerly walk by what remains of the 'C.B. Winters House' which stood
beachfront on Webster. The 2nd photo is a back view of the same house, someone is climbing out of the window. The 3rd
photo shows 2 more houses. The tall one was once known as the 'Erbe Cottage' which stood beachfront on Vincent. The house is now
a story shorter and on Webster.
This group of photos were sent to us by a longtime Strathmere resident.
The first photo is a view looking north on Neptune, from the
window of a house that still stands there today. This photo was
taken in 1957, and shows the old Coast Guard Tower on the point,
and the houses that use to be beachfront, before the storm of
1962. The 2nd photo was taken right after the storm in '62. It
shows the damage done to one of those beachfront homes, with the
tower still in the background. This home was rebuilt and moved
away from the beach, to Commonwealth. More 1962 Storm Photos
The next 4 photos are from Loretta Panunto. They show Commonwealth around 1949. In the first 2 photos you are looking south, and on the left you can see the building that would eventually become the Strathmere Motel. At the time these photos were taken, the building would have housed the McCullough family along with their realty office and savings & loan office. The second 2 photos show a view looking north, and you can see Thompkin's Store.
Remember this house? Loretta Panunto managed to
snap a picture of it just before it was totally demolished.
