We used to love to go to the Steel Pier. Our dear friend, Red Ritson, would get us discount tickets. We used to pay $1.25 to get on the pier. What a bargain it was! I would go with my girlfriends to see all of the entertainer's - Ricky Nelson, Leslie Gore, Fabin, Bobby Rydell, Neil Sedaka, the Lennon Sister's - the list could go on and on. Then, of course, we would see the diving horse. And then there was the diving bell .. too scary for me to go down in it!

Sure wish we could have it all back again. What a great moment in time! - JoAnn Sutton, Absecon
