Very cool - 100 years later


I'm putting together our collection of Vintage Strathmere postcards for a display that will be in the Schiavo Library in Strathmere. Our house in Strathmere was part of the West Jersey Cottages, a hotel that was very popular with fishermen in the early 1900s. The postcard above will appear in the display. It was taken on the front porch of the West Jersey Cottage. Gus Wittkamp is the 2nd man from the right, he owned the cottages and we bought our house from his daughter.
Anyway, I looked at the back of the postcard and it is postmarked 'Aug 10 1909' - exactly 100 years ago today! I just thought that was too cool. To think that someone sent the postcard from our house 100 years ago, and now I have it, and I'm putting it in a display in the Strathmere Library. Very cool.
