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 paternal great grandparents, John George and Elizabeth Olesen Hughes and my paternal 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.

I WOULD LOVE TO HEAR FROM YOU. All comments are welcome; however, if they are inappropriate, they will not be published.    PLEASE post your e-mail in the comment section if you would like to network about a particular surname or topic. I will capture it for my use only and not include it when I publish your comment.
