A TRIBUTE TO “FAR ROCKAWAY BELLES” – 1906

Rockaway Ol`times

A “Belle” is a popular and attractive girl or woman whose charm and beauty make her a favorite. This is the only large letter postcard of Far Rockaway found thus far that features candid photos of ‘Far Rockaway Belles’ inside each letter. The short sentiment describes them as being ‘Gold Diggers,’ back in the day. The sender of this card stated that, “It’s No Lie,” and signed it using only his initials, “J.M.W”.  I wonder why?!?!?!?
