Postcard: 161 New Jersey Entrance to Lincoln Tunnel between Weehawken and New York City. No date, circa 1937-1945. Linen-finish matte color, border, 3-1/2" x 5-1/2"; divided back; unused.
A view from the top of the administration building looking north at the portals and toll plaza. Note only the south tube (right) is in use with two-way traffic. The south tube opened in 1937 and the north tube opened to traffic in February 1945. (Note also that linen texture cards are generally dated 1930-1945, but that is not definitive.)
Titled on front in top border as above plus code at lower right: 8A-H295.
Caption on back: The Lincoln Tunnel runs under the Hudson River and connects 39th Street, Manhattan, with Weehawken, N.J. The toll gates are on the New Jersey side. The tubes have a two-lane roadway, 21 1/2 feet wide between curbs and an operating headroom of 13 feet.
