Hazelden: The Home of George Ade
Back in April, I featured a postcard of the dancing pavilion at Hazelden. It was a postcard from the 1910s or early 1920s and I was fairly certain -- although not 100 percent certain -- that the "Hazelden" referred to was the estate of author George Ade (1866-1944).
Now I'm 100 percent certain that it was Ade's estate, as I've come across two more similar Hazelden postcards that state "THE HOME OF GEORGE ADE" right across the bottom. Can't get any better proof than that!
For much more on Hazelden and Ade, see the April 2 Papergreat post.
Along the Rhine
I'm a sucker for postcards and images of the Rhine, the historic River that flows through Europe. (In this June post, I featured two stereographic cards from along the Rhine.)
Here are two beautiful old black-and-white postcards:
Burg Katz, St. Goar und St. Goarshausen am Rhein"
Loreley bei ST. GOARSHAUSEN am Rhein"
The sheer ... something ... of the Pennsylvania Turnpike
Finally, we go from the magnificent images along the Rhine to ... this. I'm not sure why this postcard exists. It's a "Lusterchrome" shot with the caption: "LOOKING EAST AT FORT LITTLETON INTERCHANGE -- On the Pennsylvania Turnpike, the World's Greatest Highway."
Fort Littleton, in Fulton County, is an unincorporated place that doesn't even have its own Wikipedia page.
