How did we forget about ships for so long? Here are a couple more to give this thread a bump.

I wonder if Skinner's Dry Dock is still around in Baltimore.



And here's a RPPC of the USS West Virginia, mailed in Dec 1942. This shot had to have been taken more than a year earlier, as the West Virginia was one of the dreadnoughts that was sunk in shallow water during the attack on Pearl Harbor. She was refloated and repaired, but didn't return to service until 1944.

Lots of ships.

I'll bring a few more modern to the collection:

I picked up a nice circa-1900 PMC depicting the Steamer Charles MacAlester, a tourist vessel that ran along the Delaware River between Wilmington and Mt. Vernon.

Here are some early naval picture postcards including an error on the USS Pennsylvania calling it Battleship Pennsylvania actually a cruiser. Also Phot cards, early US and German Submarine Postcards, Great White Fleet cards Including The Maine, etc. Hope you enjoy.

stampdorkman - nice early sub cards. thanks.


"Piracy continued to flourish along the South China coast with 51 major cases taking place in the interwar years. The most devastating of these came in 1914 when the SS Tai On was burnt to the water's edge by pirates thwarted by the stout resistance put up the ship's crew. Over 200 lives were lost in the blaze."

Here's a WWI launching at a Sturgeon Bay Wisconsin shipyard of a ship christened "Sturgeon Bay". It shortly thereafter became a floating resupply boat off the east coast of the United States for the remainder of that war.

Those are all nice, TIA -- thanks for posting. I've got one of the Solana locomotive ferry very much like yours. That must have been something to see!

Thanks GregAlex! I agree the Solano would have been a sight. I especially like your U.S.S West Virginia and Stampdorkman's submarine boat shark and porpoise..... Very cool!
