This postcard of the Esplanade at East Side Park in Paterson, NJ was mailed in 1907. The sender started a message on the front of the card about a correspondence club for postcards.
“Card rec’d. Thanks! I prefer colored views. How did you get my name? And would you like to join a correspondence club for post cards? We have a good club in the I.C.C. (?) Ever hear of it? Will send particulars if you are interested.

How cute! Postcard clubs existed back then. I knew people liked to collect postcards, but this is the first postcard I found in my collection that talks about an actual club. The card was mailed to Miss Norman S. Swartz in Philadelphia.
