Honeymoon card #1 - Oyster stew

Gladys and CJ were married on Monday, June 10, 1912 and arrived in Atlantic City on Friday afternoon.  We can assume they took the train from Hillsboro (or Westboro) to Washington D.C. where they had time to buy this postcard before changing trains for Atlantic City.  No mention of any sightseeing in D.C. but depending on when they left Ohio, they might have had a day or two there.

Fri. evening.  [June 14]
We will be at the Tracy Hotel until we start for home.  We arrived in Atlantic City at noon and have a room at the Tracy Hotel.  I saw the ocean for the first time.  The ocean breeze is real cool.  We are now ready to start to supper.  We are thinking about ordering an oyster stew.  Be sure and not work to much.  -–G.H.U.

There is currently no Tracy Hotel listed in Atlantic City although there is a "Divine Tracy Hotel" listed in Philadelphia.
