That must have been fun, anniem.  I don't know if the restaurant has the same setup, but in the past, they had some really big tanks that held hundreds of lobsters.  I would guess that they still use them to this day.

Don't remember that. I recall sand and waves and being woken up late one night to see an eclipse of the moon.

Somebody was nice enough to pencil in the year 1952.  I love everything from the 1950s.

No message on the back, but at least we can ascertain that it cost one cent to mail a postcard back in 1952.

This postcard is seeing some heavy bidding over there on the weekly postcard auction.  I wonder why?

Creighton's Restaurant again.  I say 'again' because the restaurant has appeared in this thread two times before. 
Here is one back in May, 2019:

...  You owe me a letter...

So many of these older postcards include requests for the recipient to write back

And it was assumed it would be polite, chatty, and somewhat informative. Not a reply Tweet “Fuck u u Nazi bastard.”

Hm! I'm familiar with Ocean City, saw signs for it as we traveled. Nothing looked like this postcard though.

@anniem. It's still there.  They have music concerts and stuff.  It might have looked different to you because of remodeling, renovation work, etc.

I suppose you
think it is nearly
time I was
answering your
letter.  Every body
is O.K.  They had a
hard hail over
in Dak last week.
Took every thing.  Will
write later.    Lula
