Vintage Strathmere Postcards on display in the Schiavo Mini Museum

Please check out the Schiavo Library's Mini Museum. The first collection to show in the Mini Museum is 'Strathmere by the Sea: Vintage Postcards from Strathmere'.

The postcards, provided by the Baker Family (ahem) range from the early 1900s to the 1940s.
As I was putting together the collection for the museum, I noted the postmark on the back of one of the postcards was 'August 10th, 1909'. It was amazing to realize that the postcard had been sent exactly 100 years ago during someone's vacation here in Strathmere. See that postcard, and some other familiar Strathmere places represented in this collection, at the Schiavo Library now.

The Schiavo Library is looking for more collections to showcase in the Mini Museum, whether it is Strathmere or Jersey Shore related, or any type of interesting collection that you'd like to share. Ask at the Library for more details about showing and sharing your collection.
