Coney Island Postcards New York

These forms of transportation were called Rolling Carts. Here a live person pushes you along the boardwalk at Coney Island in New York City. When the postcards could be mailed for a penny they became very popular.

Tunnels of Love and Wonder Wheel which is what we call a Ferris Wheel.

I have a few more Coney Island postcards in earlier posts. Just scroll down. Also linking you to Amazon.com for a book about Coney Island (haven't read it myself) Watch out for a few more Coney Island postcards in the next few days.

I have an absolute fascination with Coney Island and I love these cards. I saw a wonderful documentary a few years back. Wish I could have visited during its heyday.
