Hippodrome Theatre

Viewing: Photo | Street View

The Hippodrome started out as the Casino Pier at Ninth Street around 1900. It was a large structure at the end of a long pier and was a popular place on the early boardwalk. In 1904 John Young purchased the pier and renamed it Young’s Pier.

In 1905 a new boardwalk was built closer to the ocean. Young’s Pier remained and eventually was sold to Chris Hand who enlarged it in 1912, adding a 3,000 seat theatre.

In 1915 Chris Hand sold the Pier to Albert Fogg and it became Fogg’s Pier. It contained a carousel, a theatre, arcade and other amusements. In 1927, it burned to the ground in the great fire of that year

We have a old Motorcycle Sign from the Hippodrome on the boardwalk and was wondering if anyone has more info or scans of this
