This is one of my favorite ship cards. Canadian National Steamships had five similar ships named for wives of British Admirals: Lady Nelson, Lady Rodney, Lady Somers, Lady Drake, and Lady Hawkins. This view card was used for all five ships, simply changing the overprinted name of the ship.

I like that artist signed card of the "RMS Lady Hawkins". I noticed too that jarnick also mentioned the "RMS Lady Nelson". This ship, and others, also served as hospital ships during WW 2.

I have posted a postcard and a cover that was mailed from this ship and illustrate them here the way I mount them on my album pages.

Thank you Blaamand.

All my albums are a labour of love. I now have 3 large full binders of ship postcards and still have more to mount. I will probably end up with 5 volumes once I am done. These albums contain both postcards and covers, all ship related. There are even a couple of ship internal newspapers

SE MS Juno Exiting Gota Canal

Probably the best-known canal that I'd never heard of ;)

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/G%C3%B6ta_Canal ... "Göta Canal is a sister canal of Caledonian Canal in Scotland, which was also constructed by Thomas Telford."

http://www.visitsweden.com/sweden/R.../Gota-Canal/ ... "This early 19th century canal ... includes 66 locks, rivers and lakes."

http://www.gotakanal.se/en/ ... and the canal has its own website!

http://ww2.stromma.se/en/Gota-Canal...ips/MS-Juno/ ... and the boat has its own website!

http://www.eurorivercruises.com/fleet/juno.html ... and is well-known in the business

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/travel/c...e-canal.html ... 2012 review

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/travel/a...-Sweden.html ... 2013 review

http://www.ebay.com/itm/MS-JUNO-Lea...311028928986 ... ouch! a better postcard!

Cheers,

The ZSG MS Linth.

Zürichsee Schifffahrt & Gastro = Lake Zurich Shipping & (?)Dining

Blick gegen Kongresshaus = Looking Towards Kongresshaus, but good luck picking it out

https://www.zsg.ch/en/motor-boat-linth.html ... yup, same boat!

Q/ Any votes in favor of starting a "Shipcards ROTW" topic in the "Worldwide Postcards" forum?

Cheers,

The second MS Ilmatar of the Finland Steamship Company.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Finla...ship_Company ... the Finland Steamship Company

http://www.theshipslist.com/ships/l...inland.shtml ... transferred in 1945 to USSR as war reparation, and renamed EMBA.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Palm_Beach_Princess ... so they build another one in 1964, and look where it ended-up!

For those of y'all aspiring to The Bujutsu Standard http://goscf.com/t/22899&whichpage=3#382608 ...

... a ship track chart would nicely complement its matching ship card.

http://www.theshipslist.com/ships/l...anchor.shtml ... while it was easy enough to find the SS Anchoria (twice!), I was not able to find a voyage that arrived in NYC during September of any year, and was not able to find Ms Gibson, either.

Q/ Should I erase all those penciled markings to 'restore' the card to 'mint' condition?

Cheers,

/s/ ikeyPikey

If they had pocket track charts for passengers on the SS France in 1964, I never saw them and, frankly, my father was the sort of guy who would have pointed them out, and had us keep one up to date.

Which begs the question: how was it done?

Q/ Was there a daily announcement on the public address system?

Q/ Was there a daily announcement at breakfast each morning?

Q/ Was the information posted, in one/more places, so that passengers could update their charts at any time?

Cheers,

/s/ ikeyPikey

I'd like to add a card of one of the most famous ships in recent history -- the battleship Maine. Or at least her remains in Havana Harbor. I was quite startled to find this in a $1 box, considering picture postcards had not really been established in 1898 when the Maine exploded, setting off the Spanish-American War.



EDIT: And here's the back of the card. Diamond News Co. issued cards in Cuba from 1900 to 1906, marketing mostly to occupying U.S. military personnel.
