At first I assumed that this was Coney Island only because alot of the postcards in my collection are from NYCity - but now I don't think so. Maybe the Jersey shore?
I say Jersey shore because of the note on the back of the card " The run down here was simply great. The roads splendid. Enjoying it immensely. Love Tillie" And the card was sent to East 18th street in Brooklyn.
Well, knowing the geography well - you probably wouldn't write about driving to Coney Island - which is why I think that one of Eugenie's friends got adventurous and drove to NEW JERSEY - on those splendid roads and stayed for a time on the Jersey Shore.
Of course after all this conjecture on my part, and looking for clues...I finally noticed the postmark from...
Atlantic City, New Jersey.
I'm such a good sleuth~
This is a current picture of the night life on the Pier at Atlantic City - looks a bit more lively than the postcard.
This one is a picture of Madison Square in NYC - no writing on the back. But I just love it - look at all those horse drawn carts and the awnings on the windows. This picture is taken from the "Fuller Building" which is also known as the Flatiron Building in Madison Square. I don't have a postcard of the Flatiron Building but have found a few pictures of it now so you can see the difference between the Madison Square of 1909 and now.
This is the Flatiron Building now - in Madison Square. No sleepy town square anymore.
Happy Postcard Friendship Friday all.
