An early printed postcard featuring the Pera with a vignette of Kapitan Hinrichs. Card is printed Frohliche Ostern - Happy Easter in 1907. Postally used in 1907 in Genova, but sadly with the stamp removed (no damage to the card). I think this is the 1899 built Pera, which initially served for British owners, before passing to Schliewinsky & Ziegler from 1907 to 1910. In 1910 she became the Havel and was lost in a collision in 1911. A little corner and edge wear and light marking to the front, with some light stain marks, bottom left. Light marking and age tanning to the reverse, with the stamp missing. (VG-)
