This vintage postcard takes a humorous look at the Catskills, a mountain resort area in upstate New York. The Catskills resorts were very popular in the mid twentieth century. Though less visited, many of the resorts are still in operation. The Catskills are located about 90 minutes from New Yok City. This postcard presents two cats riding in a cart being pulled by two other cats. The riders have a lot of baggage as they leave the resort area. A train can be seen in the background. This postcard was published by The Ruben publishing Company. The firm was located in Newburgh, New York. This postcard was part of a series and has two identification numbers (216947 and 62).The Ruben Publishing company was founded by Jacob Ruben (1882-1974). He also operated a stationery store.. Ruben emigrated to the United States from Russia. He became a well known commercial photographer in the Hudson River Valley. He was noted for his tourist photographs as well as for his photos of local civic projects occurring in the area. SOLD
