Growing up in Alabama (Huntsville), you are required to take a vacation in PCB. My mom has loads of photos of us kids at the Miracle Strip Amusement Park, Riding Rental Honda Mini Trails right on the beach. The hotel we stayed @ for years was the Americana. There was also a fleet of moth balled navy ships right off the coast as you drove across the bridge from P.City to P.City Beach. Do they still have that tower that over looks the entire area?
My memories of your home town are from about 1970 to about 1977.

I guess every place changes. Sad I guess. Back then there were miles of coast line property undeveloped. I guess if you could own or lease a piece of property right on the beach and rent Hondas for $3.00/ 5 minutes, it was a life time ago there in PCB. Was Petticoat Junction the train ride to the Old West? If so, got photos of that too.
