This Ocean City NJ postcard, marked July 16th, 1942 and addressed to Miss Sara M. Mallette in Woodbury, NJ, reads:
Having a grand time. Water, weather, etc. fine.
Do come see me.

Postcards are an incredible look into the past. Long before the days of texting and social media, sending a card in the mail was the preferred and even “trendy” form of “modern” communication. Today, we see postcards as nostalgic reflects of an era long ago. We keep and collect them as they offer us a tiny glimpse into a person’s life and experience.
