Between Destinations (USED)

More Info

The series explores what it means to be part of and sometimes estranged from the places we hold in our memories. The ambiguity of belonging, longing, and estrangement led to the artist's choice of framing each image through a train window. We are on the inside looking out, reaffirming that we are always between destinations, from birth to the end.

Candace Plummer Gaudiani's work is in public collections including the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; George Eastman House; The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston; The Cleveland Museum of Art; and the Harry Ransom Center for the Humanities, Austin, Texas.

Cape May in Vintage Postcards (USED)

$4.99
More Info

When the twentieth century was young, visitors to Cape May knew exactly how to show the folks back home the attractions, accommodations, and ambiance of "the Nation's Oldest Seaside Resort": they sent a penny postcard.


Publishers such as local entrepreneur Joseph K. Hand provided a vast choice of views, capturing white sands crowded with colorful tents and wool-suited bathers or beachfront hotels such as the Stockton, Lafayette, and Congress Hall. Popular postcards depicted amusement centers and nearby diversions: the Casino, Red Mill, Corinthian Yacht Club, Fun Factory, Convention Hall, and Cape May Point Lighthouse. Reprinted Victorian views of hotels destroyed by fire served as reminders of the resort's glory days. Real-photo cards chronicled newsworthy events including the creation of the harbor, construction of the huge Hotel Cape May, and the 1907 fire at the Iron Pier.
