Bert’s Snack Stand

Aside from the fact that this is simply an awesome image that was photographed before the 1955 fire, what strikes me the most is the Bert’s Snack Stand sign and the advertisement for “post cards.”  Many of the postcards in my collection were originally published by Belle Freeman (or Estate of Belle Freeman) and J. Stanley Tunney.  There is no doubt in my mind that Freeman and Tunney postcards were sold at Bert’s considering that Bert’s was part of the Amusement Center complex owned and managed by the Freeman family and then by the Tunney family (which included through marriages the Hopson and Groffie families, too).
