A Postcard A Day - Brooklyn Bridge

Good Morning! 
I have another lovely postcard to show you. I did not receive this one this week, but as it Independence Day in the USA I thought it would be appropriate to show you an American card.

The photo is entitled: 
"Girl on a Swing, Pitt Street, New York 1938" 
The photographer is Walter Rosenblum (1919-2006). 
Other info reads: 
Gelatin silver print, 16.2 x 20.3 cm. 
The Jewish Museum, New York. 
Gift of the Rosenblum Family.

I love this photo as the swing depicts fun and freedom. I also recognise Brooklyn Bridge in the background and that for me (a European) is typical American.

The stamps are also very interesting:(info from Wikipedia)

  2. Thomas Stearns Eliot OM, usually known as T. S. Eliot, was an essayist, publisher, playwright, literary and social critic, and "one of the twentieth century's major poets". Wikipedia

I wish all my American friends and bloggers a happy Independence Day!

CU tomorrow,
