Dale Yacht Basin, Bay Head, NJ, Circa 1948

Dale Yacht Basin, located in Bay Head, NJ, for many years in the 1940s and 50s, held one of the largest boat shows on the east coast. The photos in the slideshow below are of boats arriving directly by rail to the showroom, the boat basin, the show itself, visiting dignitaries, F. Slade Dale, and several promotional  photographs from the era. These photos were done by Morris Rosenfeld, the leading yachting photographer of his day. The Rosenfeld negative collection now resides at Mystic Seaport.
