Devon Avenue Via Lake Shore Drive & Sheridan Road

The back of the card states the following verbatim

Double Deck Motor Bus Chicago

The motor busses start at Devon Avenue and Sheridan Road and go downtown via Sheridan Road, Lincoln Park and Lake Shore Drive then go around the loop via Michigan Ave., Jackson Blvd., State and Washington Sts. and return to the starting point. The fare is ten cents and it requires about one hour each way to make the trip. The best and least expensive method of seeing Chicago. 

The postcards available on Ebay vary in price from 9.99 up to 20.00. One postcard was mailed in 1917 and the other in 1930. Postcard stamps cost one cent domestic and two cents foreign at the time.
