Cool Cape May, The Light of Asia, and South Cape May
Ben Miller, Cape May historian (and no relation) shared the above photo of South Cape May yesterday on the "Cool Cape May" Facebook page. Cool Cape May is the best facebook group for anyone who wants to learn about the history of Cape May and its surrounding areas; I recommend joining the site. Most of what you see in this photo is now underwater just off The Cove beach, having washed away during the 1940s because of storms. If you look closely in the middle of the photo, you can see "The Light of Asia," an 'elephant' that was built in South Cape May that is a sort-of sister to "Lucy the Elephant" up in Margate.
