National Geographic : 1962 Dec
Battered boardwalk takes shape again at Reho both Beach, Delaware. Pilings and a few cross timbers weathered the storm, but planks washed away. Seaside cottages and motels were shattered. Rebuilt Rehoboth shows scarcely a scar four months after its ordeal. Engineers trucked tons of sand from inland sources to level and widen the 884 eroded beach, here bright with umbrellas.
