9 ALLAN LINE Color Lithographed Poster style Postcard for the Allan Line's RMS Tunisian

Beautiful color, lithographed postcard in the poster style. Advertising the Allan Line from Liverpool, London and Glasgow to Canada, United States and River Plate. Shown is the RMS Tunisian next to a Battleship. Looks as if it portrays a Naval Review. The art-work is an early example of the art of Norman Wilkinson. The unused reverse is headed 'Universal Postal Union' and allows only for the address. This dates the postcard as an early, undivided back, possible pre-1904, perhaps 1902 [Coronation Naval Review].

17 ANON Collection of Photographs of the 'Kathleen and May', Heritage Schooner
England No Data Shown Fine Black & White Photographs Various 
Collection of professionally taken, black & white photographs of the 'Kathleen and May', an historic topsail schooner rescued from disuse. Collection consists of eighteen, 5" by 7" and four, 8" by 10" photographs, for a total of 22. They are all taken of the ship at dockside, the majority of the deck and sail lay-out. The vessel was owned by the National Trust from 1970 to 1990. It returned to private hands in 1990 and was restored at its home port of Bideford, Devon. I believe that these photographs date from this latter period. Scans available. Info on application.
