This lovely vintage postcard is unused. And when I say “lovely” I mean…well. It is an odd little card, isn’t it? The pool is right smack next to the parking lot. You’ve got some plaid old man swim trunks. A girl with bad posture on the diving board. The hotel is nothing special to look at, and the sign on the top…nice effort? I don’t know. The color of the sky and the color of the pool are nice, with the umbrellas adding a nice bit of color repetition as well.

Here’s a facebook page for you to check out.¬†Ortley House was hit by Superstorm Sandy one year ago. Here it is on 9/20/2010 (Google Earth):
