An early, undivided back, printed postcard featuring the expedition ship Belgica in the Scheldt with a vignette of her captain Adrien de Gerlache. She was used in the Belgian Antarctic Expedition of 1897 to 1901, and presumably this card shows her return from the expedition in 1901. Postally used in 1901 in Antwerp. Light corner and edge wear and a light surface bend to the top left corner tip with very light surface crinkle. Very light marking / ageing to the front and reverse. (VG)
