Description

The postcard contains a colorful drawing of two men fishing on a beach. One wears shorts, a shirt, and a hat, while the other wears just shorts, but both are barefoot and face the ocean. They hold large fishing poles that appear twice as large as they are. The caption says that the beach is in Ocean City, Maryland. There is a correspondence on the back of the postcard with the writer telling the receiver about their time on the beach.

Hello Paul:
I sure am having a swell time in the ocean. I see a lot of little boys and girls here and play with them in the sand along the water. See you soon.
