Hello Jenkins

Lagoon and Mound 1 - Edited

Lagoon and Mound 2 - Edited

Postmarked August 24, 1937 to Mr. & Mrs. B. Jenkins of Plymouth, Pennsylvania, this postcard features the long gone Lagoon and Mound on Belle Isle. Once a popular attraction – with a tunnel through the middle of the mound, a waterfall feature on one side, and patriotic flower beds on the other, the mound at the lagoon was a featured destination of Belle Isle.

This postcard from Joule Bell/Ball to the Jenkins reads:

Hello Jenkins,

Here I am in Detroit trying to get used to the place. It certainly is beautiful out here. I hope you all had a nice time at the wedding. Write to me.

Joule Bell/Ball
