“a historic amusement park founded in 1929!”

David Gillian first came to Ocean City in 1914. He has probably spent more time on Ocean City's Boardwalk than any other living individual. His first job was playing the trap drums in the orchestra at C. Elwood Carpenter's Dance Club, sometimes called the Casino. It was located over the Moorlyn Theater on the old Boardwalk. In 1917, Mr. Gillian transferred to the Hippodrome, Ocean City's largest pier. Here he played with Robin Robinson's Orchestra. The Hippodrome was a variety pier with movies, vaudeville, dancing and amusements for children. At the close of the summer seasons, the Gillian Family always returned to Philadelphia where Mr. Gillian played with hotel orchestras.
