Item Description

A three-dimensional memorabilia collage featuring the historical Breakers Hotel of Palm Beach Florida. We started with an original 1920's vintage post card recreated as a giclee art print on archival watercolor paper. This one-of-a-kind piece is complemented with a whitewashed, distressed frame, real shells and a print of the post card's reverse side, showing the handwritten message posted in 1921. A lovely tribute to a famous place in hospitality history, plus a glimpse into another era. This artwork is from Pentimento's exclusive art line: www.recollectionart.com

Special Instructions

Check out the close up of the back of the original postcard! It's description reads:

BATHING BEACH, BREAKERS HOTEL, PALM BEACH, FLA. Daily scene during bathing hour, 11 to 12 o'clock, in front of the Breakers Hotel.

Isn't it interesting that there was a specific "bathing hour" back in the day?!

Also, the personal note will make you smile! This is truly a wonderful keepsake/art piece.
