Beach House Circa 1970

I took this picture of Marshall Field’s beach house about 1970, while walking on the Caumsett Beach with my (then) young family.  It was taken at low tide, showing a ripple pattern in the unusual rock-free, sandy beach.  The house sat on a low bluff, surrounded by shade trees, and had a magnificent 180 degree view of Long Island Sound.  Directly behind the house was a salt water swimming, and a little further back were the remnants of two clay tennis courts, which even then were being reclaimed by the woods.  A small gazebo adjoined the courts.
