Stow Lake in Golden Gate Park, San Francisco, was the subject of this 1929 post card published by the Pacific Novelty Company. As for the specific year, I have other cards written by this same individual on the same trip, that are dated and include the year, this one does not. It was written to "Dear Folks," but the entire back of the card was used and it was never posted. The condition is Excellent, with edge wear and corner blunting being very minimal. Only the upper right corner has any wear at all. There are no holes or stains and the card is also free of any soiling or apparent discoloration. In the area just to either side of the row boats is a crease. Neither one runs out to the edges of the card and they are not easily seen. On the reverse they are all but invisible. I do know that it was in an album for many years, away from light and much viewing at all. The scene is of families walking the promenade around the lake, among the flowers, while a couple of row boats come into the scene. In the lower left corner is the apparent identification number, S.F. 88.
