If you have ever traveled to Hampton Beach during the summer, you know getting to your desired location to plant your toes in the sand isn't always easy. Next time you're in traffic, remember this photo from the 1920s of Hampton Beach, where it seems beachgoers parked wherever they wanted. (Top phot, The Associated Press)

Bottom photo: Massachusetts Northeastern Street Railway trolleys No. 57 & 63, Exeter, Hampton and Amesbury Street railway trolley No. 67 and a Portsmouth Electric at far left, parked in front of the Hampton Beach Casino, circa 1910. The old beach bandstand can be seen between the trolleys and the beach. (Photo courtesy O. R. Cummings from http://www.hampton.lib.nh.us/)
