German porcelain souvenir china plate with central hand colored view of the "New Atlantic City Boardwalk." It appears to show the fourth boardwalk built, dedicated in May of 1890. The destruction of its predecessor during a hurricane in September of 1889 brought about this exciting 'new' version. It was an expansive 24 feet across with railings on both sides.

Souvenir china views were created from original photographs supplied to the manufacturer by the local group or company commissioning them. A transfer made from their (black and white) photo was applied to the article being made. Often the image was then hand colored, as in this example. German-made scenic 'china' articles typically were made of good quality hard paste porcelain, which has helped many examples to survive through the years. Souvenir china views of local landmarks and buildings were popular as travel souvenirs between 1890 and the mid-1930's. Today they offer us tiny windows on the past.

The plate is 7 1/2 inches across and in excellent condition with good gold trim around the edge and no chips or cracks. Round 'Made in Germany' mark on reverse.
