Boat Houses, Along East River Drive

Boat Houses, Along East River Drive

I took a drive out to New Town Square today to visit my 86 year old great-aunt. While I was there, she sent me to look around the storage area in her basement to see if there was anything I wanted. I came out with two very dusty old bags of snapshots and photo albums. I don’t think anyone has looked at these in over 25 years. The newest picture I found, at the very bottom of an ancient (although very sturdy) Acme bag was a poloroid of my mom and me when I was about three months old (I’ll be 28 in about a month).

The postcard above came from my great-grandmother’s postcard album. It was sent to her home in West Philadelphia from the Broad Street Station on May 27th, 1905.
