Perry Street, Cape May New Jersey













This is an old, unsent postcard published by the Albertype Co of Brooklyn New York. The street in old Cape May is shown unpaved. A sign on the house in the foreground has a sign that says "Mae Ville" or "Mae Villa". Do you recognize this scene? If so, please leave me a comment.

I love this postcard of Cape May, my favorite town!

Thanks for visiting, by the way. I like other folks who enjoy history and genealogy.

Teri, thank you for your comments. As you can probably tell, old letters, postcards and photos are my favorite links to the past. Old paper gives us a very personal look into the actual lives of the people who left it behind. Keep on digging!

We've been to Cape May a time or two. There's a place that's retained its character. I like that too.
