Description

Moody Beach is nestled between the Ogunquit and Wells beaches. At just over a mile in length (1.6km), it stretches south from Moody Point to join onto Ogunquit Beach.

The Tichnor Brothers printing company published this type of postcard circa 1938 as part of their Maine series. These, and other postcards, by the Tichnor Brothers Company are officially known as the Tichnor Gloss Series because the photographs were notoriously retouched on such a level that does not allow the postcards to be classified as photographs or paintings. The caption reads, "Beach and cottages at Moody Beach, Maine."
