What a Wonderful Surprise

Post Cards of Rehoboth Beach History
( Left card from David Doss, Right card via Google from Corbit-Calloway Memorial Library )
As a hobby, David travels antique shows and flea markets, purchases old photos and mails them back to their place of origin.  Many thanks to David for finding this card and sending it to us.  The back of the Post Card shows it was from Voelker & Curran, Pavilion Studios in Rehoboth Beach, no longer in business.  The right photo was discovered using Google search and credits due to Corbit-Calloway Memorial Library in Odessa, Delaware for it's use.  Note the early 1900 period dress and bathing suits!   

WE ARE ... featured in April!
