This view card showing the Ariella was published by local businessman A. Carl Haag and was mailed by Ben Mathis of Island Heights to Pauline Berry in Tuckerton, NJ. The postmark date on the reverse side of the card is smudged but looks like it’s either September 7, 1914 or September 7, 1916. The wood plank bridge behind the boat was open to the public in 1915, so the 1914-1916 time period appears to be accurate. The bridge was located at the end of Hamilton Avenue on the bayfront. A different view of the Ariella is shown on page 15 of my book.
