Wish You Were Here…Postcards From The Bronx
March 12, 2009 at 12:30 pm
Boating in Pelham Bay. (I've done this.)
Lover's Lane in Bronx Park. It reads: Dear Eva! Thank you very much for the postal. Best Regards from Roger Olsen (I believe it says "postal", and not "pastel", which would be more romantic.)
New York Botanical Garden. The women at left are walking along what is now called "Ladies' Border". The NYBG describes this area as "Southern beauties thriving in the North." And that's on the garden website.
Poe Cottage and Park. Former home of Edgar Allan Poe.
Van Cortlandt House, which still stands in Van Cortlandt Park.
Orchard Beach Pavilion.
Pelham Bay Park Campsite. It reads: Am camping here for a few weeks having the time of my life. Lou
This last one is my personal favorite!
All postcards on view in the entrance hallway of The Valentine-Varian House in The Bronx.
