We all know about building sand castles at the beach, but how about building full out sculptures and works of art? To the right is a lion built by a sand artist in Atlantic City. Some artists would work for commission, some for tips, and because the building of these sculptures attracted large groups of people, some would pick pocket. Pick pocketing led to an outlaw of making sand sculptures on the Atlantic City boardwalk in 1944. Another popular sand sculpture featured on postcards besides lions are automobiles.
