Strathmere Trailer Park Photos

This photo was sent to us by Richard Dardine. Richard remembers - "It's of my maternal grandparents, Charles and Katherine Frank, of Philadelphia. I recognize the trailer as the one I visited with them and my parents around 1949~50 or so. When I was there, it was to help clean up the trailer, as it hadn't been used in several years, and was full of sand that had blown in through every minute opening; also, my folks were evaluating whether it was worth keeping, as my grandparents were planning to move to Miami when my grandfather retired. I was only about 5 or 6 years old, so I walked to the beach (about 50 yard or so, as I recall) while the adults cleaned. I got about 10 steps onto the beach when I was set upon by a flock of the infamous green-heads. It was my first exposure to a biting insect, much less one the actually drew blood! I ran screaming back to the trailer, forgoing a beach stroll."
