EARLY 1900'S ORANGE LAKE NEW YORK AMUSEMENT PARK EARLY DIVIDED BACK COLOR POSTCARD, SHOOT THE SHOOTS SLIDE RIDE, GAZEBO, PRINTED IN GERMANY, NEWBURGH, ORANGE COUNTY, NY, ***PLEASE READ ENTIRE DESCRIPTION AND VIEW LARGER IMAGES BELOW***

Up for purchase is this great antique early 1900's divided back color postcard showing a view of the Shoot The Shoots ride or slide in Orange Lake Amusement Park near Newburgh, New York. On the far left side of the image are a couple of boys standing in front of a boat. Behind and to the right of them is a gazebo. Just a little right of center is the tall slide which has a boy at the bottom of it. There is also a boy in the water and some people standing to the right of the slide. The partial white border on the left lower side would indicate this card was probably made shortly after undivided backs were no longer used, I would guess it dates no later than 1910. This old amusement park closed during the Great Depression and was torn down in 1941.

The postcard is in good condition. The corners are worn and a little rounded and there is minor creasing in the lower left one and a tiny crease in the upper right one. The corners and edges have minor finish loss being most noticeable in the lower right corner. The card is not quite squared as the vertical edges are not completely straight. This can best be seen in the image of the back of the card. It's not really noticeable when viewing the card as I didn't notice it until editing the images but I try to mention anything I see. Overall the card has nice color and still displays well. It was made in Germany but there is no publisher listed. This card has not been mailed and has no writing on the back. All photos have been enlarged to show the flaws and attributes of the card in better detail. It is standard size measuring approximately 3 1/2" by 5 1/2". Please view all the images to get a better idea of the condition of this postcard. I have another amusement park postcard listed so you might want to check my other auctions.

If you collect postcards of Newburgh or Orange Park, NY or the Orange county area, or old amusement park views this may be one for your collection. It would also be a nice item to have if you are organizing a pictorial history of this area. Please check my other auctions for more antique and vintage items I'll hopefully be listing throughout the week. These will include more postcards, vintage sterling and cameo jewelry and a lot of other neat things. Should you have any questions please contact me and I'll do my very best to answer them. Shipping is always combined for multiple wins.

The shipping on this postcard is free. My actual shipping cost just for postage is $1.69 for USPS First Class including delivery confirmation but should you decide to bid I'll cover that. The card will be shipped in a postcard sleeve between two pieces of cardboard wrapped in bubble wrap. All my items are guaranteed to be as described or the purchase price plus return shipping will be refunded. Payment should be received within 5 days.
