THE ‘CLASSIEST’ GREETINGS FROM ROCKAWAY, NY 1909

Rockaway Ol`times

Today’s postcard contains four smaller views of some Rockaway locations in 1909.

  • Top Left – Curly’s Atlas Hotel on the beach at Beach 116th Street.
  • Top Right – Rockaway Beach Blvd. at Beach 84th Street – Yokel’s Hotel on the right.
  • Bottom Left – St. Rose of Lima, R.C. Church on Beach 84th Street.
  • Bottom Right – The Park Inn Hotel across from Curly’s on Beach 116th Street.

This card was printed on bromide paper in Great Britain, and published by M. Basch of Rockaway. It cost me $25 back in the early 1980’s!
