Description

This sepia toned picture postcard features a flat naval ship with two pole masts on either end and three funnels/stacks in the center. The coastline with buildings and churches can be seen behind the ship. The handwritten title along the bottom of the card reads "U. S. S. Terry Leaving Quenistovia Ice." The back of the postcard identifies the item as a postcard and provides publisher information as well as indication for correspondence, address, and postage stamp placement. The card is inscribed in the center, though it is not addressed or stamped.
