These are amazing photos - I am really interested in the history of Coney Island and Rockaway Beach so I am going to Stumble this one! My grandmother went to RB as a child in the 1890s and I have a lovely picture of her done at a photographer's (probably on the midway) with beachy backdrop and sand strewn on the floor.

Loved this blog submission... okay, I actually love them all. I agree about the Arvern, it was spectacular. I will certainly "google it". Thanks for sharing!
