"The Traymore." Atlantic City.

Cartoon featuring the Atlantic City, NJ resort hotel with victorian boardwalk and beachgoers. Publication unknown. Pen and ink on paper. 445x365 mm; 17 1/2x14 1/2 inches, image, mounted to slightly larger board.

The Traymore began as a small boarding house in 1879, but expanded to become one of the city's premier resorts. Throughout the 1950-60s, as Atlantic City began to decline in its popularity as a resort town, the Traymore diminished in popularity and began to deteriorate. It was demolished in 1972, only four years before the New Jersey State legislature passed the referendum that legalized gambling in Atlantic City.
