Hi Found this interesting site. Brought back memories. Regards, Joan
RevereBeach.com has put together this site for you to enjoy. Peter McCauley's collection of old photographs is outstanding and we felt this would be an excellent way to display some of the beautiful history of Revere Beach. There is very little written of this great two-mile stretch of beautiful sand and sea which served as a vacation spot for millions.
From 1875, the year which the Boston, Revere Beach & Lynn Railroad (B. RB & L. RR), better know as the Narrow Gauge, was born, the crowds on hot summer days became larger until the early 1900s. It would not be uncommon to have 100,000 persons sharing the sea and the amusements at Crescent Beach, as it was then called.
Oak Island and Point of Pines were renown for their acres of picnic grounds complete with swings, merry-go-rounds, bandstands and dancing pavilions. Music from brass bands played all day long. steamboats would tie up at the Point of Pines and at the Ocean Pier bringing crowds from Boston, Lynn and Nahant.
Go on - enjoy the prized possessions from time past at Revere Beach.
