"Ocean City Panorama" by Paul McGehee. The view from the Pier of the famous Maryland beach resort of Ocean City as it appeared in the summer of 1915. This scene completes the monumental panorama which the artist undertook three decades ago starting with "Old Ocean City" followed by "An Ocean City Memory". The Ocean City Pier and the Pavilion Building were built in 1907 and served as the entertainment hub for beachgoers of yesteryear who wanted to get out of the sun for a while. Dressed in their finery, they would promenade down the Boardwalk and enter the Pavilion Building. The massive building had EVERYTHING under its giant, curved roof including live bands, dancing, silent movies at the theatre, arcade attractions and much more. Fishing from the Pier was as popular then as it is today. They even offered trapshooting off of the end of the Pier, over the Atlantic surf! This is a unique view of the early days of Ocean City...complete from the amusements to the south all the way up the beach to the famous "hotel row" at the north end of town. This important piece of Maryland history is not to be missed. "Ocean City Panorama" is faithfully reproduced as an archival-quality print from McGehee's original color pencil drawing, each print hand-signed by the artist. A limited number of pencil remarqued prints of this edition are also available.
