This Norwegian postcard features a ship at sea, labeled "United States." The bottom left also reads "United States" and the upper left has a Norwegian seal. The back reads "Brevkort" meaning "short letter" and the left margin says "Alex. Vincent's Kunstforlag, Enoberettiget No. 702"

I love the note on the back. It's written by a Norwegian immigrant to the United States, who is on her way back to Norway for a visit. She writes, "Dear Tena: Well how are you? Here you see the boat I'm going with. Isn't it a beauty? I'm well and injoying [sic] myself. Soon we'll be in the North Sea. I'm so glad soon we'll be in Norway. Love, Aunt Annie."

This postcard has sharp corners, but a faint semi-circular crease at the center top, and a few marks consistent with having been mailed. The postmark and stamp are Norwegian.

All postcards are shipped within 48 hours, and packaged in a protective polyethylene sleeve and sturdy recycled mailer. Please note that within the continental US, you only pay shipping for the first card you buy--all additional postcards purchased at the same time are shipped free!

Please examine the attached scans before purchasing, and let me know if you have any questions!
