CURATOR’S COMMENT: Postcards From the Last Resort

Harveys Lake is the largest natural lake in Eastern Pennsylvania that was accidentally discovered by Benjamin Harvey during the Revolutionary War. By 1870 the lake had become a resort attraction. By the early 1900’s the lake grew as a community and as a tourist attraction. Steamboats and trolleys were added along with a picnic grounds, an amusement park, and a roller coaster that attracted thousands as far as New York. The decades of the 1920’s and 1930’s were considered the lake’s golden age. The photographs of Postcards From the Last Resort are meant to loosely replicate the pastel postcards that were popular during that time.
