Garden State Parkway Postcard

I love this postcard’s retro feel.  Even in its simplicity the image conveys an important message – that the Garden State Parkway was critical for the development of Seaside Heights into a competitive seasonal resort town. A southbound or northbound trip on the GSP, probably in bumper to bumper traffic, between Memorial Day and Labor Day was a rite of passage for many young people and families.
