Seeing the nearly full moon last night over the ocean inspired me to want to post this view of a moonlit Sandy Bay. It was only as I was preparing to publish it that I realized that I had previously published this exact same view, only in a different postcard (see image right). As a matter of fact, the earlier version benefits from a better printing job, with more vivid contrast and dramatic clouds covering the barely visible moon.
Both postcards come from the Rockport Photo Bureau. I suspect that this one was printed later than the other. The other was printed in Germany, which was common for postcards before World War I, but this one was printed in New York.
