So which one of you lucky bums got there ahead of me? Looks like possibly around 1906 or so.... I do not see the hotel that was built on the corner of 36th and Fulton.

My favorite thing about that postcard is that it costs 1 cent to send by mail.

The POLAR BEAR Classic-New Year's Day

We'll be on Spreckels Lake at 1pm New Year's Day.

Two boats do make a race! More boats would make it more better. Lets hook-up and float your boat- New Year's Day. It beats watching TV. Start 2013 with a splash.

PS If it floats, splash it! We're NOT snooty-free sail/RC/big/little-Its New Year's Day. Let boat.
