Seagulls at Cape May, New Jersey
I guess we’ll have to take the postcard writer’s word that this is in fact the view off Cape May. For all we know, one could drive up the road an hour or so and buy an identical card that says “Sea Gulls Dip over Breaking Waves, at Barnegat Bay, N.J.” Oh, wait — they couldn’t be dipping over Barnegat Bay. Because then they’d be bay gulls.
Bad puns aside, this beautifully-colored card was produced by Tichnor Bros. Inc., Boston, Mass, probably in the late 1930s. It’s a gift from Donna, who was happy to let me appreciate it and prevent the postcards from completely taking over her living space.
