Atlantic City PCs

Postcards from Atlantic City are among my favorites. Here are some examples from my collection. Check out the unique way of describing the beach on the back of the first postcard. ENJOY!

On the Beach - Sea bathing at Atlantic City is enjoyed yearly by hundreds of thousands of persons, who disport in the surf or loll in perfect abandon upon the magnificent sea beach. Life boats and guards are ever ready to assist the over venturesome bather, who may have gotten beyond his depth or be otherwise in need of assistance. The beach during the bathing season presents a scene of color and hilarity no to be excelled.
