This vintage tee dates all the way back to the 1950s. During that time, t-shirts were just starting to become a part of casual fashion. Historically they had primarily been worn by soldiers, or they were often associated with rebellious movie characters like James Dean's Jim Stark in Rebel Without a Cause. This shirt was made for a staff member of the Recreation, Parks, and Conservation Department of Long Branch, New Jersey. The staff likely opted to use t-shirts for their uniforms to accommodate for the physical nature of their jobs.

Long Branch is a beachside city found in Monmouth County. It has been a popular family vacation spot for many decades, and because of this, the community works hard to provide suitable outdoor spaces and activities.

The tag says medium but fits like a modern unisex adult small. There is discoloration on the front, and a small hole on the back of the collar, see pics.
