Festival of Postcards #4--WATER


The next edition of A Festival of Postcards is dedicated to WATER - so it’s time to get out those postcards depicting bodies of water, boats, bridges, fish – or anything that contains liquid! Hosted by Evelyn over at Canadian Family.


This is a Stevengraph postcard purchased several years back. Why? My great grandparents, John George and Elizabeth Olesen Hughes and my grandfather, George Henry Hughes immigrated to the U.S. aboard this ship in 1906. The family boarded the R.M.S. Caronia in Liverpool, England on May 9, 1906 and arrived at the port of New York on May 19, 1906.
