Reproduction aero-view map of Ocean City, New Jersey drawn and published by Frank H. Taylor in 1903. Ocean City is a coastal resort town that was established in the late 1800's as a temperance and Methodist resort dry-town. The sale of alcoholic beverages and public drinking has been prohibited within the city limits since day one, as a way of promoting the beachfront community as a family destination. The dunes and swamps of what would become Ocean City were originally used as Native American hunting and fishing grounds and later as a staging area for the whaling industry. A bridge to this remote community was built in 1883 followed closely by train service. In 1897 the borough was made a city. It contained beautifully laid out streets, a water works which used artesian wells that were driven nearly 800 feet below the earth, a sewer and drainage system and electric lighting. Popular hotels of the era included the Brighton, Illinois, Emmett, Wesley House, Vandalia, Strand, Lafayette, Traymore, Excursion and Adams Casino.

The map from 1903 includes Ocean City's streets buildings and beaches. It features inset promotion that reads:
