Lot of 4 Transportation Postcards Trains & Steamer Ships: 1930s - 1950s?


My grandmother collected these. There is no writing on them and they have never been mailed. Using information on the backs of the cards and examples of postmarked cards I have identified examples one card from the 1930s, the Merchants & Miners Line Steamer Ship Card. I am guessing that the City of Detroit III card is late 1930s or early 1940s but it could be earlier. The ship was taken out of service in 1950. It began service in 1911 or 1912. The Super Chief Train card is from the 1950s. I believe the "Tom Thumb" steam engine train card is also from the 1950s but I do not know for sure about that one. It could be 1960s or even early 1970s.


Condition (See my grading scale below): Most cards in very good condition one in good condition with pin hole at top (City of Detroit III)


Please feel free to message me if you have any questions or would like detailed information about any card(s).
