Fans of Seaside Heights nostalgia will remember Henry’s Playland well. It was on the boardwalk for many decades and can be seen in many postcards. When I was a kid the arcade and concessions were owned and operated by the family of a childhood friend named Scott Bassinder. Scott’s father is David Bassinder and his grandfather was George Bassinder (who had worked for the Seaside Heights Police Department for many years before retiring). This postcard was postmarked on July 26, 1969, and was mailed from Elsie to Miss Helen Conway in Millersville, PA. Elsie wrote about passing time in her cottage on rainy days by playing cards or working on jigsaw puzzles.
