PARAMOUNT II, Brielle, NJ – 1945
The Bogan family's "PARAMOUNT II" from Brielle, NJ circa 1945. Built in 1937 by Ernest Fiedler's Bergen Beach Boat Works at Brooklyn, NY, she cost the Bogan family the then tidy sum of $3,292 to build. If you look closely in the background, you can see a Central Railroad of New Jersey steam locomotive hauling a commuter train from Bay Head, NJ to New York City.
