    I used to own “Custard Island” at the old North Long Branch railroad station during 1959-60.

    Love these pictures! My family belonged to White Sands, I did “water ballet” for a few years as well as swim team, my brother surfed at USO beach and we used to walk to Johnny’s Luncheonette just to take a walk. Such wonderful memories. I no longer live around there so thank you for the memories.

    I grew up in NLB from 1956 to 1971. I’m still searching for pictures of the backtracks, that started near Johnny’s.

    I worked at Johnny’s Luncheonette from 1966-1970. John Warren, who was my uncle, owned and operated Johnny’s from the 1950s until he sold it to Eddie Nilson in 1970. John originally bought it and partnered with Bruce Bradley. He bought out Mr. Bradley in early 1960s and was the sole owner and proprietor until 1970.

    The Beachcomber was my first lifeguard job at age 16. I worked for owner Dr. James Tsigonas.

    Any interior pictures around of Johnnies Luncheonette? I would love to see the inside of that building again.

    I grew up in Long Branch in the 1970s. Went to LBJHS and LBHS. Joined the US Navy in 1979. Visited in 1985 and so much had changed then. I miss Long Branch — these photos sure bring back some memories.
