Last time I talked about the Curt Teich Archives and their website. They also have an online store that you can click on and see a list of vintage reproduction postcards to order. I couldn’t resist ordering a few and am thrilled with them. I am including a couple or three here just for you to enjoy.
The one at the bottom is my favorite–isn’t it great?!!!! The Gator Diner was located at Central Avenue and 20th Street, St. Petersburg, FL, 1951. I love it!!!!
The next one up is also a diner–beginning to think I have a thing for diners. It’s the Boulevard Diner at 41st Street and Crescent Boulevard, Camden NJ, 1950. It obviously was the “in” place in Camden.
Finally, the one here at the top goes all the way back to 1911. On the front it reads (in case you can’t see it): Fifth Avenue on Sunday morning, New York City. Anyone who was anyone could be seen here on Sunday mornings. Remember the Easter Parade? “On the Avenue, Fifth Avenue…..” If you don’t remember the song, ask your grandmothers, they have at least heard it. LOL I got a few more postcards from the museum, maybe next time. Until then…..
