Amusement parks are very popular on postcards and we have all heard of the BIG ones but it is the smaller, less known, ones that are always a great find. The postcard for today is a 1940s aerial view which gives you a great perspective on the size and, in this case, popularity of the Pontchartrain Beach Amusement Park in New Orleans Louisiana. There is a huge boardwalk along the edge of the salt water lake, a large beach between the two piers with lots of swimmers in the water, two large parking lots which are full of cars and a very impressive roller coaster. Keep an eye out for these postcards which are highly sought after. There is a better image in the Louisiana postcard section of our website, Moody's Postcards.
