Here’s a nice postcard of the view looking northwest over the rooftops of Ossining to Croton Point and Haverstraw. The card is postmarked from Ossining, January 18, 1905.

This is what’s called an “undivided back” postcard, printed during the period when postal regulations prohibited any writing on the back except the address—hence the note to “Dear Peter” on the front.

This card was published in Ossining by William Terhune—one of several local postcard publishers we can thank for preserving images of the area that might otherwise have been lost.

Here are some other Terhune postcards:
