Cover Illustrations by Tyrone L. Hart

The illustrations by Tyrone L. Hart appearing on the front cover of The Northside were commissioned specially for this book.

A  lifelong resident of Atlantic City whose work is exhibited throughout the region, Mr. Hart specializes in contemporary and historic scenes of people and places on the Northside.

The artist recalls how reading an early draft of The Northside brought to mind his late grandmother, Katie Bell Gardner, who arrived in Atlantic City in 1921 at the age of 21.

Mr. Hart dedicates the work seen here to this inspiring woman who, more than anyone he has known, lived the story told in these pages.
