Atlantic City was known as the “Playground of America”, and has a fascinating history that can be explored through Postcards. From the history of the Miss America Pageant, to gangsters and salt water taffy, let’s use postcards to tell the history of my local beach resort city. Of course, this also provides a wonderful opportunity for some Xtremedeltiology and Xtremephilately.
While this channel is dedicated to philately, deltiology has many intersections that allow us to expand our collection and enhance our experience with the hobby.
