Descripción

Red cloth, "Post-Cards" stamped in gilt on upper board; 7.75 x 9.75 inches; contains 24 grey leaves, each with 4 postcards (2 on recto, 2 on verso) mounted to the page via corner slits (and, as such, easily removable); 96 postcards in all. Binding broken, with many leaves loose; and brittle, with the occasional broken corner slit. Postcards, however, are in excellent condition, bright and clean -- just a few with maringal handwritten notes, most handwritten on the verso, with the original stamp and postmark. A wonderful turn-of-the-century collection or postcards, featuring images in b/w and full-color, illustrated or photographic, offering numerous views of Coney Island during the day or at night, empty or peopled, aerial or up-close, interiors, exteriors, its architecture, and landmarks. Just a few images repeat -- the swing at Luna Park, for example, is shown once in b/w, and again in color. Sights include Surf Avenue, The Bowery, the Entrance and The Tower at Dreamland, Steeplechase Pier, the Chutes, Culver Depot, Feltmans, the Flip-Flap, and more. Many of the landmarks captured here are no longer with us today, due to fire (Luna Park appears throughout the album, before it was heavily damaged by fire in 1944) and the "development" of Coney Island by Fred Trump (who invited investors to throw stones through the stained glass windows of the dance pavillion before he demolished it -- an interior of the pavillion is included) and a string of NYC officials.
