Times Square, New York City

The mailman has brought me three new postcards for my collection since Saturday. Lately, addition to my collection have been slow in coming, so this has been an unusual seven days.

The latest addition is the chrome postcard illustrated above. It depicts the north end of New York City's Times Square with Broadway in the foreground and 7th Avenue in the background.

The card is postmarked 1952, but the photograph used for the card was taken in 1946.

It is usually easy to date when photos of Times Square were taken; just look at the card and note what films are playing, then look up the date of the film on In this case, there are two films clearly advertised: A Stolen Life starring Bette Davis and Night in Paradise starring Merle Oberon
