A fun, full-color look at the 1950s and 1960s commercial architecture of The Wildwoods — particularly its motels — and focusing on its various forms: Modern with jet-age glass walls and angled roof designs; Vroom! with its thrusting pointed elements; and Polynesian Pop, with thatched roofs, tiki torches, and plastic palm trees. And of course those great neon signs!
