1930 AERIAL PHOTOS OF MASTIC, MASTIC BEACH & TANGIER

Thanks to Marty Van Lith for doing the detective work and physicaly retrieving this buried treasure from the Stony Brook University Library Archives. These Photos Are As Important For What They Don't Show As For What They Do Show. With The Stock Market Crashed & The Depression About To Hit With Full Force It Is Amazing That Home Guardian Co Stuck With It And The Town Of Mastic Beach Just Didn't Disappear As Quick As Tangier Did .

The From A Distance Overall Picture

Now Let's Look At The Details

FOUR YEAR OLD MASTIC BEACH

Sections One - Five

SECTION ONE Opened MAY 1926

SECTION ONE FILE MAPS HERE

THE ORIGINAL TOWN ANCHORED BY THE MBPOA CLUBHOUSE #1 & MASTIC BEACH HOTEL #2

I think #3 is The Fire Department on Lakeview Drive. I recall the wooden garage that stored the '29 Pierce Arrow being there in 1952 : #4 is Mastic Beach Store at Whittier & Birch (later known as Dick's) : #5 is Al Raynor's store / lunch and ORIGINAL short lived Mastic Beach Post Office. There is No Vandenburg's Store & Post Office on Aspen & Whittier yet : #6 Is Woodhull Mansion that was torn down 8 years later. Sal Azzatto built The Sand Bar at the Al Raynor location in 1938 ? looks to be a Large Building or Home

MIDDLE OF SECTION ONE

The most highly developed area There are approx 50 + Buildings Visible

THE LAGOON AREA

# 1 Beach One with Bath House #2 Nick Hansen's Boat Yard YC I believe is the yacht club. Some of the fishing shacks and bungalows on the shore were wiped out in hurricane of 38

SECTION TWO

Although opened just a month after Section One, development here seems to be SPARSE

I can find less than ten houses after 4 years of development. Some Could Be Very Well Hidden By Trees
