NEW JERSEY postcard - Ocean City, NJ 

Weather Beacon - This lighthouse has a base of Blue when skies are fair and clouds are few / Its color turns to PINK, youll see, for rain or high humidity / but when it has an ORCHID hue then youll know a change is due

#1 on the bottom right and JACKIE below the lighthouse

Back:  This card is a hygroscope with surprising accuracy in forecasting weather.  It is intended for indoor use but for best results must be placed where it will have access to outside air.  Important:  Spring, summer and autumn the card functions well anywhere.  In Winter it may remain constantly blue unless placed in the air space between window and storm sash, in an outside foyer or enclosed porch, in an automobile etc

There is a tear to the top edge

  • Please note that the majority of the cards are over 50 years old and as such, are sold AS IS. Tears will be noted but it would be too timely to note each fault on every card.  If condition is important to you - contact us with our number in the title & what it is that you would like to know or what it is that you would like pictured more closely.
  • Again, because of the age of the cards - they are noted as being USED - no matter if they are written on or not.
