Lake Deering Park Greetings From Portland, Maine
2 Lake Deering Park Greetings From Portland, Maine
Portland, Maine Hugh C. Leighton No Date Very Good 
I think this is the prettiest card showing Deering Park in Portland, Maine I've ever seen. The white caption at the bottom left corner adds to the attractiveness. The card has not been used and is very crisp and clean with just a tiny wear spot at tip of both right corners and a small discoloration at back above stamp box. The stamp box at back is the clue that it's an older card, as it states, "One cent for United States and Island Possessions, Cuba, Canada and Mexico. Two Cents for Foreign." Card will arrive in brand new plastic sleeve.

Post Card Steamer in the Ice Glacier Bay, Alaska
4 Post Card Steamer in the Ice Glacier Bay, Alaska
Seattle, Washington Hopf Brothers circa 1907-1914 Very good condition 
This card offers very few clues to its age, but it's an early one due to it muted colors and hand colored look. It was also printed in Germany which was common for many quality cards during the period. Whenever you see the little round logo with its trio of girls you know it's a Hopf. Sometimes it's brightly colored, but this one matches the scene. Card has not ben used and is clean and nice. Will arrive in a brand new plastic sleeve.

Unknown location Unknown publsher Not stated circ 1920's Very Good condition 
This black and white card is very clean and nice with no writing on the divided back and no postmark. I did, however, find one just like it with a postmark dated 1922. The Henrick Hudson was put into service in 1906 at the cost of one million dollars. It was quite the thing in its day -- it even had art on its interior walls. The boat was a side wheel steamer licensed to carry 5500 passengers from New York City to Albany and that it did until 1951 when it was not only discontinued, but purposely broken down and hauled away. Card will arrive in brand new plastic sleeve.

18 R.M.L. Berengaria Postcard Cunard White Star Line (circa 1935)
Unknown 1935 Very good 
A very handsome color view of Cunard White Star Line's steamer the R.L.M. Berengaria. This passenger liner was originally built for the Hamburg American Lines in 1912 and christened the S.S. Imperator. During WWI it saw a small bit of service as the U.S.S. Imperator where it was put to work transporting troops home from the European theatre. After the war it was given to Cunard as part of war reparations and from then on operated as the flagship Berengaria for the final ten years of its career. The card is very nice and clean. It's postmarked New York City and was sent to Mrs. O.I. Trump of Springfield, Ohio in 1935. The message reads "Dear Katie & Oliver, This trip has been most delightful. My only regret is that some others could not have enjoyed it with me. Maybe we can arrange it sometime. Am not saying it is my last trip. Have been with a woman from Baltimore who has been over every year since 1928. You and Oliver should have taken this trip instead of to Florida. It would have done you as much good and more restful. Not as much driving. (Name can't be read). Card will arrive in plastic sleeve.
