WPA Paving: Atlantic AvenuePhoto from "The Dawn," a New Jersey WPA publication; June 1936 issue, page 11.
The condition of Atlantic City’s primary thoroughfare Atlantic Avenue was so poor that it was occasionally referred to as “no man’s land” prior to the federal Works Progress Administration’s resurfacing of the road in 1936.
