I have found a couple more old photos of the boardwalk wich I have added to my album no. 5. These photos where taken from the Messager Centennial Edition of December 15th 1976. Verdun was founded in 1876. Since the boardwallk was paved at the beginning of the 40s, these photos would have been taken prior to that period. I recall having walked on the "real" boardwalk in my youth.
