A photo postcard featuring the Svea. She was built in 1882 as the Kovno at Earle's Hull for C.H. Wilson, Hull. From 1903 to 1918 she was the Svea. In 1918 she became the Tilia for Swedish Lloyd and was wrecked as the Maitland in 1926 in the Thames Estuary. Light corner and edge wear with a tiny knock to the top left corner tip. Generally clean to the front with a few light surface marks. Sadly there is a light wash of glue residue over the surface of the reverse of the card. Otherwise a little marking ageing to the reverse. (VG/G)
