Postcard from a Coaching Party on Boulevard Drive

This postcard bears the date of Aug. 31, 1906 — 115 years ago today. It shows horse-drawn carriages on “the Boulevard,” now known as Skyline Parkway. The illustration might be an interpretation of the Twin Ponds area; it’s not clear. The artist apparently felt the popular scenic byway’s gravel surface should be green.

The handwritten message on the card reads, “Will leave here to-day for home,” and the sender’s name looks like “Smith.”
