Caroline sent this card to Miss Hazel Merfeld at Mercer Hospital in Trenton, N.J. She said, “Hello: You and Harvey ought to be here if you want a good time. I am having the time of my life.”
The card was made by W.H. Bechtel Co. of Asbury Park. The stamp cost one cent and has a profile of Ben Franklin. Who can tell us what that green area is in the foreground, right and center? Also, who can tell us what a “good time” was like back then at the North End of Ocean Grove.

SOUNDTRACK: If you think we have problems with crime in today’s OG, listen to what Leon Redbone had to deal with back then.
