Bower's Beach, Murderkill Avenue
Another old postcard from the Jenkins Family of Woodside Delaware. Mary Jenkins sent this card to her husband P.W. Jenkins. Now on other postcards, I have seen her husband's name spelled as Philip Jenkins and also Phillip Jenkins. Mary sent this card while vacationing in Bowers Beach and talks about the good seafood. The card is postmarked from Bowers on July 21, 19?? (most likely about 1910). The card was published "for C. J. Candler" by the Philadelphia Post Card Company.
You can see some more modern photos of Bowers taken by gifted local photographer Mike Mahaffie at his photo site ...or you can see a recent aerial photo by Fritz Schranck by clicking here.
