On the back: “The Convention Hall, possibly the largestd in the world, covers seven acres of ground and can seat the entire permanent population of Atlantic City at one time, with room to spare.

Located within Monmouth County, New Jersey, Ocean Grove is an unincorporated community that was founded in 1869. The Jersey Shore retreat was established as a location for camp meetings by the Methodist Church, with the iconic “Tent City” being a part of the place from the beginning.

Postmarked in 1911, on the back of the postcard is written, “This is where we will spend next summer.”
