This reproduction aero-view map of Atlantic City, New Jersey was published by Hughes & Bailey in 1909. New Jersey's resort community of Atlantic City was the vision of Absecon resident Dr. Jonathan Pitney, who saw great potential in nearby Absecon Island. Transportation to the island was difficult with its surrounding marshlands so Pitney, along with civil engineer Richard Osborne, worked to bring the railroad to the isle. The two developed the new community of Atlantic City and quickly plotted the acquired land. Streets that ran parallel to the ocean were named after the world's great bodies of water, while streets that ran east and west were named for states. Fancy resort hotels of mammoth size, as well as smaller apartment and rooming houses flourished throughout Atlantic City in the early 1900's. The resort hotels were considered luxurious with up-to-date amenities. This map shows Atlantic City twenty five years before its streets would become immortalized in the Depression Era's "Monopoly" game.
This bird's-eye view map from the early 1900's shows Atlantic City's buildings, beaches, piers, railroad routes and clearly labeled streets.
