I am always on the lookout for old Bethlehem postcards and found this one a while back at an antique show. And it is a gem. Until I saw this, I had never seen a picture of the old Adams Hotel with the Delmar Fire Hall sign over the door. The dealer said the post card itself dates from 1915 to 1920.
The writing on the back is interesting too. It is written in pencil and seems old but is not dated or signed. Below is the transcript. It certainly leaves one wondering about the who and the why.
This is the building where we go each election day to safe-guard our rights. I wonder how many others like myself have had them taken from them by the very ones who was trusted with them.
PS: The old Adams House is located on Delaware Avenue at the corner with Adams Street. It is now the Chabad Center.
