Three more Beach Scenes.
 Notice that plagiarism is rampant in  pre-WWI postcards. Except for the coloring, these are identical. All three of these cards have a different publisher.  We're thankful to Don Prout for sending them to me.  He notes he has three more  different cards with the same exact scene!
