The most successful 19th-century photographer in Long Branch was Gustavus Pach (1845-1904), one of the several brothers in the Pach Brothers, a prominent firm with more than a dozen branch studios in the northeastern United States. Gustavus Pach began photographing in Long Branch from a mobile wagon in 1866 and opened a gallery the following year. He is highly regarded for hundreds of scenic stereo views of Monmouth County.

Gary Saretzky is a recently retired Monmouth County archivist, acclaimed author, and photographer. 

Funding has been made possible in part by a general operating support grant from the New Jersey Historical Commission, a Division of the Department of State, through grant funds administered by the Monmouth County Historical Commission.
