Titanic postcard. A pleasant surprise from an ebay purchase of an incomplete photo/postcard album with the National series issue of the Titanic within. Would have been nearly 12 months ago and when I viewed the card's rear, there was perfect pre-sinking evidence of stamp, postal cancellation at Queenstown as 3.45 pm 11th April 1912 and a postscript written in pencil. The sender was, from my research, a third class passenger of the name Alphonse Meo, declared as a musician aboard at the time. Written in Italian however the mail recipient seems to be a sibling also named Alphonse Meo with an address in England. Tragic yet intriguing as one wonders if Mr A Meo was playing in the band as the vessel went down! Any thoughts on the possibilty?
