    I’m speechless.That postcard design is amazing.I’ve never seen another one like it.Just —- Wow!

    It’s sort of a feast for the eyes, isn’t it? I don’t usually buy individual cards, but this one was just too neat to pass up!

  2. This is the kind of card that makes me want to stay away from Coney Island today…only because I wouldn’t want the way it is today to taint my image of it from cards like this. This postcard is simply fabulous.
