Very nice set of battleships. They all appear to be the same group of ships. Perhaps these were taken during a training exercise? WWI era?

Now, that is a pretty card, Aviatik.

From the details in the rigging, I'm guessing that it is a collotype:

The Joseph Conrad Card was made by the American Art Post Card Co. They are known mostly for their collotypes.

This postcard is from my collection showing the United States Navy aircraft carrier USS John F Kennedy postmarked on the day it was decommissioned. My brother-in-law sent me this card, as he was assigned to this carrier as an instructor for new recruits. I gave him the postage stamps to put on it. This was an end of an era in the US Navy, as this was the last conventional powered aircraft carrier in service. All modern aircraft carriers are powered by nuclear reactors.
