Asbury Park 1940s: Wesley Lake & Casino

A recent eBay find: An 1940s image of the Asbury Park Casino and power plant tower in the far distance.  Wesley Lake is in the foreground and the side of the long-gone Mayfair Theatre is visible in the middle distance.  Squint after clicking the image and you will see the ferris wheel of Palace Amusements just over the Mayfair's shoulder.  I've never walked the entire length of Wesley Lake back toward the inland side but perhaps I should sometime so I can take some comparison shots.
