Market Street Bridge and Skyline at Night

Dublin Core

Title

Market Street Bridge and Skyline at Night

Description

Several buildings and the Hotel Mallon Sterling are visible on the front of the card, acting as the background to the Market Street Bridge and waterway in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania. The illustrated scene is shown from a point of view that is across the bridge on a bank or on the water.
The color-added illustration depicts the Market Street Bridge and and Skyline at night in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania. The bridge is arched underneath with pillars reaching into the water to hold it up. The water is calm and blue and reflects the buildings on the skyline and the bridge.There are lamp posts that are lit along the bridge most likely for the sidewalk on the bridge. There are two pillars on each side at the end of the bridge where it meets the city. There appears to me an outlet on land to get off the bridge through stairs and there appears to be a sidewalk or road curving to the right and going under the bridge. There is green grass and a tree near the bank of the water on the side where the skyline is. Behind there are five buildings that can be made out with one being hidden by the bridge only being able to see the top and part of it under the bridge. There are two red buildings and one is the Hotel [Mallow] Sterling. The white building in the background that has a sign on it but is facing the other way. Stairs can be seen on the outside of the building leading up to the higher stories that is in front of the hotel. There appears to be smoke in the air but that could just be the shading in the postcard. The sky is a dark blue with hints of light gray signifying the clouds in the sky. There is wear and tear of the back of the post card as well as the ink appearing a bit faded and blotted.

Added. I'm not entirely sure if this is a color-added card or not. -SAD 02/15/2017
