This Ocean City NJ postcard of the Ocean City Motor Boat Club, marked from an unknown year in the month of March at 3:30 p.m. and addressed to Mrs. Charles Carter of 23 Franklin Street, Bridgewater, N.J., reads:
I will be to the train to meet you, so be sure and come.
Love to all,
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 relics of an era long ago. We keep and collect them as they offer us a tiny glimpse into a person’s life and experience.
