Merry Christmas at the Steel Pier in Atlantic City

Yuletide photo of the Steel Pier in Motion Picture Herald, June 2, 1932: 

" 'Twenty-five different attractions all for the price of one,' we can almost hear a member of Eddie Corcoran's staff bark in front of the box office at the Steel Pier, that famous amusement enterprise on the boardwalk at Atlantic City, N. J.

"You will recall that Corcoran used to put over exploitation campaigns for Keith's in Philadelphia; now he is acting as publicity director for the Steel Pier, where he not only sells pictures but a lot of other attractions, all for one admission. The above photo shows the front."
