Postcard Friendship Friday


When I first went to take the pictures I thought not much has changed--the walkway is the same......the flags are still flying---maybe even more flags are flying......but, I forgot about the
dunes.  I am not a big fan of the dunes--it blocks the view of the ocean.  But, looking at this picture it is prettier.
When I take a picture of the postcard---I get a lot of glare. Next week I will have to take pictures of postcards in the Musuem mode so there is no flash.  There is no handwriting on the back.  It was made by Union Distributing in Red Bank, NJ.  It looks like from the bathing suits it was the early 60's......bb (before bikinis).  I love how everyone's hair is "done" and perfect.

I say "Bring back those bathing suits!" At my age, it's AB "after bikini!"
Love the postcards!
Keep up the great work!

Are the dunes man-made? If so, I suppose it would stop the walkway flooding. The postcard is great, very 60s I think!

Happy PFF!

I remember dunes like that when we went to Maine in the 60's.
Great postcard.

Ahhh...the beach-it's always beautiful-even when hairstyles and bathing suit styles are not-lol:)! I always enjoy seeing pictures from the past-it's fun to see all of the changes that have taken place in styles. This was a fun post!

Blessings,
