For the record Mark, don't know why it took me so long to read your Sept. 27, 07 LUSITANIA ARRIVES "Is at Queenstown after 5 days 4 hours 19 minutes". Thanking you now ;-)

Coincides and couples spendily with my Lusitania p.c. cancelled PA QUE BOT Sept. 27, '07 Queenstown. And yes, Eric L.,
closing in on 102 yrs! Nice to know that an historic paper postcard is so lovingly preserved, as is most of our other collectibles.

So I pause now to think of my Great Grandmother Jacobs who was two yrs. old in 1907...and passed away at 104 yrs. of age.

POSTSCRIPT: Boy, sorry about the last paragraph, my numbers just did'nt figure :-(
My Great Grandmother Jacobs was 16 yrs. old when TITANIC foundered, so eleven yrs. old in 1907...and not living still...but did pass away at 104 yrs. of age...

...never did like mathematics in school ;-)

Boy oh boy! I was off by a country mile. Per our, this morning conversation, my Mother informed me Great Grandmother Jacobs was born Sep. 2, 1878, thus making her 29 yrs. 25 days old on Sept. 27, 1907, and passed in 1982. Unfortunately my ocean-liner interest did'nt peak until 1 Sept. 1985. I would have loved to talk with her on any memories she had upon hearing news about the loss of Lusitania & Titanic, on knowing that she never cotracted Alheimers disease. May her genes thrive in me O' Lord...;-)
