#23: Tennis at Farquhar Park (Postcard Blogathon 2013)

Title: "Tennis Court, Farquhar Park, York, PA."
Publisher: M.J. Shambaugh, York, Pa.
Year: Not listed.
Used: No.

Comments: The front of this postcard is obviously not in great condition. ... Farquhar Park is still around, and still sports tennis courts that I've used.1 It's one of the multiple great parks in the City of York. Our family's favorite is probably Kiwanis Lake, which we visit often to see the geese, ducks and some endangered species of birds that have chosen to roost there in recent years.2 ... For more vintage postcards of York, Pennsylvania, check out this October 2011 post on my wife's Only in York County blog.

Papergreat's Chris Otto is spending June 5, 2013, blogging as many vintage postcards as possible. It's "The Fast and Furious" (and hopefully also "The Fun") for ephemera lovers and deltiologists. Read all of the posts starting here. Are you tired of reading this note yet?

1. Tennis attire has, however, changed a bit over the decades.
2. Two more Kiwanis Lake notes: (1) It's possible that I enjoy, as a guilty pleasure, going a little too close to the goslings, which causes their parents to hiss at me in comedic fashion; (2) I took these two photos at Kiwanis Lake in early September 2011.
