VAUD J Advertising Card, Anglesea, NJ – 1923
An advertising card for the fishing steamer "VAUD J" from Angelsea, NJ circa 1923. Cards like this were often given out at local shops and train stations in the greater Philadelphia, PA area. Cape May, NJ and Angelsea, NJ (now called North Wildwood, NJ) were the closest ports to Philadelphia that offered deep sea fishing trips. The popular way to travel to these New Jersey ports was aboard special excursion trains that transported thousands of anglers daily. There is little doubt that Captain Dunn gave special attention to ladies.
