Tonight, I am sharing a postcard from my collection in hopes of finding out what is shown on the picture side. The Japanese writing leaves me baffled, but there is a flag on top of the building with the letters KKH on it, perhaps a clue? Is this a hotel or something else? Can anyone translate enough to tell me what this building is and where it is located? Thanks.
The address side shows a nice postmark struck May 29, 1935 onboard the Dollar Steamship Lines ocean liner S.S. President Hoover, eastbound from Japan to the United States. I recommend you read the Wikipedia link below, telling the fascinating story of this ship, subsidized to carry mail by the U.S. Post Office, bombed in the Shanghai River, was only in service about six and a half years before it ran aground east of Taiwan, damaged, salvaged, and sold for scrap. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SS_President_Hoover
