Seaside Heights boardwalk NJ 1960s
"The Steel Pier in Atlantic City, New Jersey, extending almost one-half mile into the Atlantic Ocean, is surely the greatest amusement enterprise under one roof in the world. With its many theaters, vaudeville, ballroom dancing, exhibits, diversity of entertainment, a visit to the pier is a vacation in itself."

A promotional film from 1960 that was rediscovered in 2008. It’s great to see the old rides and boardwalk - and the music and narration is pure 1950s style.
