An article on the arrival of Brittania at Fremantle on 13 February.

https://trove.nla.gov.au/newspaper/...le/202883311

The postcard would've travelled by train to Melbourne and thence to Adelaide. But I've no idea about shipping arrangements from Adelaide to Fremantle.

This from the Adelaide Advertiser 1 February 1905:

https://trove.nla.gov.au/newspaper/article/5037293

From the same paper, mentioning the Brittania:

https://trove.nla.gov.au/newspaper/article/5037505

As for the May 1905 articles, would this not be the next outward journey?

EDIT: The 1 February 1905 article mentions a ship, the Kanowna, under the A.U.S.N. advertisement, which sailed back and forth from Sydney to Fremantle.

Yes, the RMS Brittania was coming from England, reaching Fremantle on 17th May, and ending up in Sydney on 25th May 1905.

Info on RMS Brittania for Rodney's benefit:

Rod,
Thanks for posting the image of the bunbury office,
Lots to appreciate in that photo, the architecture, the car, the knob and tube street light
Curious about what is in the doorway?

This one had me occupied for a bit….

Wow!
Fabulous Jill, thank you, don't know how you do that, I exhausted all my searches.

RMS Brittania (Launched in at Brisbane Australia !)
Fuel 110 Tons of coal per day ! Yikes.

So a Peninsular and Oriental Steam Navigation Company
Know them well
My parents kidnapped me, and brought me to Australia on the RMS ORION
A beautiful ship, in corn livery, and on whom, I learned to swim.

Same route through the Suez Canal (But no stop at Marseilles)
Sri Lanka, the Adelaide.

That is a common design for an Post Office in Australia,
it is a PORTICO
An open space to the public, before the doors into the PO.
Usually a space for 24/7 use of Post office boxes, and shelter from the sun or rain.

..and so it should,
(for me) a scarcity, if my guess is on the mark.
I have NO double ring Pmks in my collection, and NONE in Violet.

My guess it may be this fellow, albeit on a late use 1890 stamp.
or, it may have a telegraph genesis.
Other Australian specialists may want to chime in.

If your stamp had had a full cancel with name, my guess it would be
worth a pretty penny.

Tenterden is possible?
On the bottom right side there's TE maybe?

I am not aufait with the rest of the double ring Pmks,
maybe they are of the same design, maybe not.

Your guess (for me) is wild of the mark, as the name
looks like it is the centre horizontally, and not around the circumference of the ring.

Nice negative scan though!

If it was TENTERDEN I would suggest a RRR
I drive through Tenterden, to go to Albany, and there is nothing there, a roadside shop and bowser, that has closed I think.
Population 2016 = 224

With your negative scan, I am beginning to doubt
that is a CDS (circular date stamp)
It kinda looks like it may be Oval.
That opens another can of worms.

From Jill's *pdf
Something new, Contract requirements of the Royal Mail Contracts.

1887:
Maiden sailing established a new Brindisi/Adelaide mail record of 23
days 10 hours, at an average of 16 knots as against 14.5 knots
required by the mail contract

Just_Fella,

Your cancellation is likely to be a POST & TELEGRAPH OFFICE oval rubber stamp like these:

Just_Fella,

Your 'O' in 'POST' is less elongated than the ABBOTTS example shown, so it may be a different office.

Nonetheless a similar type.

Agreed probably not the same office
But..
Found out what it was,
learned of some new places along the way
No negative to this at all :)

Thank you
