The Opening of the Manasquan Inlet

Photographed by F. Slade Dale

Restored by John Van Horn

 
This series of photos taken by F. Slade Dale in 1931 shows the reopening of the Manasquan Inlet after the construction of the jetties. According to the video "Yesterday On Film", produced by The Point Pleasant Historical Society the official reopening took place prior to these photos on February 10, 1931, when during the project the waters of the Atlantic Ocean and Manasquan River first met again. But from the video and these photos the permanent reopening to make the inlet navigable did not occur until the dredge pictured, working its way down the river, broke through to the ocean.
