PORTRAIT OF THREE VISITORS TO CONEY ISLAND : COURTESY OF THE DREAM STUDIO (1908)

This vintage real photo postcard features a portrait of three visitors to Coney Island. Coney Island is a neighborhood and entertainment area in New York City’s borough of Brooklyn. The postmark on this card was stamped in 1908. By that time, Coney Island was well known for it’s amusement parks. In fact, between 1880 and World War II, Coney Island was the largest amusement area in the United States. The city of New York built a boardwalk to be utilized by visitors. Where there are boardwalks and amusement parks; there are photo studios. One of these studios was the “Dream Studio” and the threesome seen in this photo found their way there to create a souvenir memory. The “Dream Studio” was operated by Mr. H. Tarr. It was located on Surf Avenue at West 6th Street. The 1911 Dreamland Fire burned down Mr Tarr’s photo studio, but in a short time, it was reopened. This postcard is in very good condition (see scans).
