The Germans certainly excelled at color lithography and produced the most sweetly sentimental and exquisitely complex paper offerings from 1903-1917. Forget-me-nots were the flower du jour. For all you Birthday Boat People out there this week-THIS one is for you! NGL like you have never seen before!

Tichnor Brothers certainly got their money's worth out of this one negative. Of the four, the mint and rose is the most valuable. Of course the condition and autographs or significant messages on the back can alter price considerably. The number of passengers and crew lost changes from card to card.

I was at a swap meet last weekend and came across two Queen Mary Booklets, and inside were several post cards of the last trip she made. The book has a copright of 1971, and the inside fold out shows the proposed use for the Queen Mary, including the Jacques Cousteau exhibit. Pretty good for $3.00!

Shelley you have some really nice postcards, I only have a few good ocean liner postcards. I have to say the best find I have made to date is several months ago I found a Carpathia postcard for about $3.00. Obviously the seller did not know what significance the Carpathia had in history.

This is an odd series- have darkened the card a bit so the Baltic will show up- I suspect this may have been one of a series- anybody got any others? The ship is actually embossed and feels raised from the card stock- the original is all white and looks quite ghostly!
