Dick Shetler - Strathmere Photos
The family home on Whale Beach in 1938. The home was built by Jane Shetler's father Howard Eisenhardt, who was an engineer for Socony Mobile. The original house stood on Buchanon Ave in Whale Beach, before the hurricane of 1944. Buchanon Ave. used to be on the Ocean side of Commonwealth Ave, and was located 2 blocks north of Taylor Ave.
