(Seeing as how I haven't posted in a while - here's two in one day!)
Poking around in the two dollar postcard box in an antique store in Cohoes (shout out Dennis Holzman) this weekend I came across a few wonderful finds for my own collection. The Indian Ladder at Thatcher Park, Albany at Night, and these Bethlehem beauties.
The top and bottom ones are familiar, I think they've both made an appearance on this blog, but it is fun to have my own copies. The one in the middle is a new one to me.
I immediately wondered about the West Main Street part. I have never heard or seen New Scotland or Kenwood referred to as Main Street, never mind West Main Street. Maybe it is a stock photo, but maybe it is our Slingerlands. When blown up in a larger view, the houses visible in the trees on the left could be ours. So I am calling this one plausible.
What I really enjoyed was the message on the back and Mother Birdswell's comment about her "nice auto ride last night, the longest one I ever had." The card is postmarked July 19, 1915.
