Lincoln Avenue in Carbondale, PA - 1909

This is a postcard showing a view of Lincoln Avenue in Carbondale, Pa.  It was sent to an address in Remington, Indiana, and postmarked in Carbondale in 1909.   It was published by the Rotograph Co., "N.Y. City", and printed in Germany.

Many pre-WWI cards were printed in Germany, and frequently have very nice colors and sharp details.  The quality of printing declined after WWI started.

This old card just shows a pleasant street - but if you look closely you'll see a large animal, probably a horse.  It most likely is pulling a cart of some sort.
