Very Good. Lower left hand corner has a slight crease in the corner. Corners are bruised

MORE HISTORY
The Governor Cobb steamer was built in 1906. It has the distinction to be the first American made ship outfitted with steam powered turbines. It was first put into service in 1906 in New England and then served as a training ship during World War I.

In 1918 the ship was leased to Peninsular & Occidental Steamship Co. It was used on the Key West to Havana route. Although it ran that route until 1937, since the stamp required dates to 1932 then it has to be pre-1932. Thus this card dates to 1918 - 1932.

Item No GE00160
