Postcard of the Night No. 5, Atlantic City

Kent’s Restaurants was a small chain based in Atlantic City. All their outlets were publicised on linen postcards, presumably gratis to customers. In pursuit of this example, here embellished with a jumbo-size crimson crustacean, I made the obligatory trip on Street View to discover an empty, boarded-up demolition site. From Flickr I learned that it had traded for 30 years as the Poseidon Restaurant before closing in 2006, suggesting the demise of Kent’s was some time ago. Swept off the map by competition and now only the cards remain.
