CB postcard 1938 - A Night On The MidwayNorm Melton is speaking to us this month about growing up on the Carolina Beach boardwalk, so in that vein here’s another postcard showcasing the boardwalk, this one at night.

This postcard is postmarked from Carolina Beach on July 3, 1938 and is from a lady named Janie who mailed it to Axton, Virginia and who also had a very trying vacation.



At Night on the Midway - 1938 - cardback


On the back of the card, she writes:
“Well we are here. I am not enjoying it so well though. I have had a sick headache all day. Ferrell and Ruby had to cook today, I am better now. We have a nice little new five room house. We liked to have not found a place to stay at all. Seems like everyone is here for the 4th. Rent and all much higher than any other time. We are going to Raleigh Fri. Sure do miss Melvin and Callie. Man was drowned here yesterday, glad I didn’t see him. Hope all of You are well. Love Janie”
