1911 postcard from Prattsburgh, NY

Found on E-bay.

Prattsburgh is near Naples, NY - my ancestral home. Parents, grandparents, etc all lived around this area.

Prattsburgh, NY is about 300 miles from the nearest beach - with sea shells and a boardwalk - today, and was probably a similar distance from the beach in 1911!

The Finger Lakes are near-by, but while the water and shore are great, very little sandy beach area, definitely no sea shells, and outside of a long dock, no boardwalk!
