A Downer, NJ postmark

Most Gateway students might not be interested, but I was beinterested because a grandfather of mine had family living in Downer, NJ at one time. As far as I can determine the Post Office there closed in 1936. Click on the second link below for a higher resolution image. When this postcard was offered on eBay the seller read the postmark as 1910, but I see Dec 17, 1930 -- and US census records show Oscar Walter Huntsinger with mother, wife Emma, and niece Viola living in Downer in 1930. Viola would not have been born yet in 1910. You can click on the relevant census page page below.
