Here’s a Real Photo Postcard from the Republic of Panamá, 1947. The cancellation mark is too blurred to read the city. The sender wrote:
“Hi Sweet: Here is a picture of our ship! and by the way, I got the dates[?] wrong on the letter. I…?… to you: Will explain in the 4th coming letter! Love. Frank.”
The card was addressed to: “Miss Jeanette Hume, 2100 Virginia St., Virginia Court #6, Berkeley, Calif.”
Well, here is a mystery. What was the name of this ship? It’s always interesting, and quite frustrating, when you can almost make out a detail like the name on the hull. I looked at ship photos on various online sites but didn’t come up with a match. And this is part of the Alice Ellison Collection, for which we have many more to put up.
Divided back, Real Photo Postcard. Postmarked May 11, 1947. Republic of Panamá.
