    Scope and Content

    The collection of 52 postcards are views of various square-rigged sailing vessels.
    All have the vessel name written in pencil on the back. The lettering is very similar to that of the J. Porter Shaw photograph and postcard collection (P05-001), and may very well be the writing of J. Porter Shaw. A little over half of them are stamped "Sold by Arthur Beale, 194 Shaftesbury Ave., London, W.C.". A few are stamped "Nautical Photo Agency."
    The ships depicted are: AMULREC, ANAKONDA, ANGLESEY, ARDENCONNEL, CARACAS, CEREAL, DECHMONT, FANNY FISHER, FREDEN, GABRIELLE D'ALI, GANYMEDE, GENERAL DE BOISDEFFRIE, GLENMARK, GORCH FOCH, HEATHFIELD, HERMANOS, HERO (two), HJERTNESS, ILMA, INDORE, INVERCAULD, IONE, JANE BELL, JANES, LOBO, LOCH CREE, LOCH FINLAS, MACCABEO, MAGDALENE VINNEN, MARCO POLO, MAIPO, NORMA, REICHERSTIEG, ROLLO, ROYAL TAR, SARAH, SAVOIA, SHAKESPEAR, STRATFORD, SUAREZ II, SUCCESS, TAMARA, THEODOR, TJERIMAI, TRASQUITA, VIRGO, WILD WAVE, WINTERHUDE, WOODBURN, WYNFORD, WYNSTAY.
