This postcard depicts Messoudie', an Ottoman Turkish warship. It was postmarked CONSTANTINOPLE on 2 December 1908 through the German post office there. Written on 2nd December in Cospoli, and sent to Mms. H. Herrmann in Immenstadt, Bavaria. The writer says they passed without quarantine, and he hopes to be home before the new year.

Here are a few more, mostly of Great Lakes steamers. I've got some battleships I'd like to post next, once I can get back to scanning.

Here's a French battleship (I think) in a Brest shipyard, either being built or repaired. This would be WWI era -- can anyone identify her?

Okay, some more battleships! A couple of these are from the Great White Fleet, I believe.

The USS Massachusetts, USS Topeka, USS Arkansas, and the USS Ranger.

Here are 3 ship postcards free to anyone who is interested. The back side of the "3 ship" card is also posted. If you want them, just send me your snail mail address.

A favorite thread.. Lots of shipping of lumber in the early day of logging the redwood empire. It was in fact the only way the get the redwood lumber form the north coast to San Francisco. No train connection until 1911. Millions of board feet of lumber were shipped to San Francisco. But I've already shown most of the working ships, these are just ships. Although the first card is the Ferry Mendocino.




























And lastly, two ships in fresh water, one at Lake Tahoe and the last at Crater Lake, Ore.

Now you have me wondering about the term "Tramp steamer" -- any idea what it means?

Possibly steamers with out contracts, sent into Eureka with a shipment, looking to pick up additional cargo.
