Postcard Diaspora: New Haven, Connecticut 1906
Postcard mailed to New Haven 8/2/1906 from Norfolk, VA, depicts the Hampton Institute in Hampton, VA on an advertising postcard for the Old Dominion Line. Message: Suppose you are thinking of me and wonder if I am sick. As I write you can feel the boat rock. Hope for a moon-light night. Yours, Ed. [P.S.] Could not take any picture as it was too cloudy. [On board O.D.S.S. Co.'s S.S.] Hamilton Wed. Aug. 1st 1906 I'll mail this to New Haven address tomorrow.
By the way, looks like the steamship Hamilton got into some trouble back in October 1900.
