VERMILION, OHIO – OH – O – 7 MATTED POSTCARDS FROM THE LINWOOD PARK CENTENNIAL
Established on the shores of Lake Erie in 1884, Linwood Park celebrated its 100th anniversary in 1984. A full summer’s festivities occurred, and a number of souvenirs were sold for the celebration. From my massive post card collection I selected a good many duplicate cards of Vermilion, and the park, which were sold in the centennial gift shop. I just located some remaining unsold matted cards that I have grouped into two lots – one strictly Linwood, and this lot has seven cards of the town itself or views in the Vermilion Lagoons.
I created the back of each mat to indicate all the details found on each postcard, and included a line stating:
1884 — LINWOOD PARK CENTENNIAL — 1984
Now after been put away for over 35 years it is time for these to head back to Ohio to make a nice grouping on someone’s wall in Linwood Park, The Vermilion Lagoons, or Vermilion proper.
The cards in this lot include: Night View of Liberty Street Looking East; Liedheiser’s Restaurant; The New 312,000 Gallon Capacity Water Sphere; GREETING’S montage; Busy Day on the Lagoons; Club House and Residences of Vermilion Lagoons; and, Vermilion Boat Club.

The majority of the illustrations in the 1984 edition of THROUGH THESE GATES: LINWOOD PARK come from my collection. But, since that time I have accumulated an even larger collection of Linwood postcards, ephemera and park souvenirs that have never been published. I hope someday to find the right collector/collection to place these in, and may begin offering here.
