Thanks for sharing the video. My wife's aunt and uncle and cousin summered just a hundred yards off the north beach since about the 1940s. Shortly after I met my wife she spent the summer with them and worked in one of the restaurants near the main beach. Of course I had to visit every weekend, so I have lots of memories but only 45 years ago, not turn of the century. I would stay until the last minute then drive home up the Maine Turnpike at 1 and 2 AM, sleep a few hours, then get to my summer job. I don't know how many times I dozed off driving and woke up just before the car swerved off the highway, it's a wonder I survived. The cousin still lives there year round, and we took a drive a few weeks ago around the beach and up 1-A to Portsmouth. What with the concrete sea walls and the gravel berms it is much harder now to see the ocean from the road. But I did see a few mansions I would be willing to live in.
