Vintage Delmarva | Postcards of Fenwick Island, Delaware (Part 1)

Postcards, matchbooks and advertising featuring attractions of Fenwick Island, Delaware. Located at the southern tip of the First State and bordering on Maryland's popular beach town of Ocean City, MD, Fenwick is a refreshing destination for summer vacations. Many folks enjoy the small town feel and less crowded pace found along the Atlantic Ocean in the First State.
I'm not sure where this view would have been....?
