The image on this postcard is a view of the eastern side of the 21st Street pier. Mounted on the roof of the Dreamland Cafe is a large sign (actually, twin signs back to back, one facing east and one facing west) advertising the Turf Grill, a Maceo eatery in their downtown headquarters building. Shown on the far left, at the end of the pier, is the Balinese Room.
