New Jersey - Asbury Park (1908 Postcard)

A postcard view of the station area in Asbury Park, New Jersey. The postmark shows 1908 and 6:30 p.m., but the date did not print.

 

Asbury Park is a shore resort, about 40 miles (60 km) south of New York City. The station is at the far right. The photo might have been taken from the roof of the shelter along the tracks. A pavilion or bandstand is in the background.

 

I do not see any automobiles in the photo. My guess is that most of the carriages are waiting for the train, to take arriving passengers to hotels.

 

This card was printed in Germany, as were several other high quality postcrds of the period.
