Item description

We are pleased to be able to offer for your consideration this magnificent view of the Brooklyn Bridge on an Early Divided Back postcard, published by Rosin Co. of Philadelphia and New York and printed in Germany, sometime prior to 1909. Rosin Co. had offices in New York and Philadelphia and they made post cards of the middle eastern seaboard of the U.S. during the late 1890's and up until 1921. All of their cards were printed in Germany except for all the cards printed after 1917, when the U.S. entered the First World War. No collection of views of New York would be complete without having at least ONE view of the Brooklyn Bridge. The Brooklyn Bridge is one of the oldest suspension bridges in the United States. Completed in 1883, it connects the New York City boroughs of Manhattan and Brooklyn by spanning the East River. With a main span of 1,595.5 feet, it was the longest suspension bridge in the world from its opening until 1903, and the first steel-wire suspension bridge. Since its opening, it has become an iconic part of the New York skyline. It was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1964 and a National Historic Civil Engineering Landmark in 1972. The front of this card features a full bleed (the view goes all the way to the edge of the card) color view of the bridge and some of the piers and docks on the shore below. There is at least one "Tall Ship" visible in this view plus several regular, steamships. In the period around the end of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th, sailing ships were still plying their routes, up and down the east coast of America, especially hauling goods and passengers from the poorer Caribbean and Gulf of Mexico region. In the upper left corner is the caption, "Brooklyn Bridge, N. Y. City." The back of this card is an early divided back postcard with most of the back devoted to the address and a small area for a message. The publisher's info is along the left hand margin, followed by the words, "Made in Germany". The ware number, "541." is at the bottom left corner. This card is postmarked 1909 and bears a typewritten advertising message to the recipient. The lower right corner has separated and is missing and all four corners are a bit rounded. there is some cancellation ink on the front in small spots. No collector of New York City postcards would leave out a view of the Brooklyn Bridge and this one is an exceptional one because of the time period that it was made.
