Postcard Image Cat No. Ship Name Description Price GBP
Argo 1096808 Argo An early sepia printed postcard featuring the steamer Argo in the River Avon with the Clifton suspension bridge in the background. I have not been able to identify which "Argo" this is - there were many ships with the same name about at the time of the postcard. Postally used in Bristol in 1905 - the sender of the card appears to have had no luck in finding out about the Argo either!! Light corner and edge wear with age toning, foxing and light indentation marks at the corners from album corner mounts. A little light ageing and a couple of foxing dots to the front and a postal cancellation top right. Very light marking / ageing to the reverse. (VG-/VG) £3.99
