Union Hill – Schuetzen Park
While our collections are basically Hoboken, here is a postcard from outside our borders.
Schuetzen Park in Union Hill (later to become park of Union City) was a place well known to Hoboken residents especially those of German ancestry. The site of many festivals, parties, sporting events and political gatherings (it is still around), Hobokeners were frequent attendees. It is a useful item to hold as background for the many references to the Park in relation to those social, ethnic, political and athletic activities.
Patricia Conklin donated this card from circa 1907-1914 along with two others of the era. See them all in the online catalog, use keyword: 2015.006.*
