Rudolph Dolle and Rudolph Dolle Sr. traveled to Ocean City, Maryland to scope out property for their hand-carved carousel. They loved the budding beach town and promptly purchased a piece of land on the corner of Wicomico Street and the Boardwalk. This photo was taken on the pier during the father-son scouting trip.
Rudolph Dolle Sr. purchased a small saltwater taffy stand located on the same property as his carousel, and Dolle’s Candyland was born.
By the 1920s, Dolle’s Candyland was a successful candy store offering a variety of homemade confections, including the original saltwater taffy, caramel corn, fudge, and caramels.
