The Graceful S. S. Princess Anne

With a superstructure designed by the famous Raymond Loewy, the S.S. Princess Anne launched in 1934 and plied the waters until 1964, when it was sold and became the S.S. New Jersey.  It is now an artificial reef 100′ deep off West Palm Beach.  (I have enhanced the color.  The card has faded)

Old Silo

You don’t see a lot of these around.  It’s a wooden feed silo.  I have no guess of its age, but these tended to rot out over a period of time.  It’s located on the right on Highway 58 in Lee County VA, just a bit east of the junction of 58 and 421.

Ozark Air Lines DC-9

Oversize 5″ x 7″, company-issued postcard.  Since Ozark Air Lines acquired its first DC-9s in 1966, I would suppose this card dates from about then.  Ozark lasted from 1950 to 1986, when it was bought out by TWA.  The company was based in St. Louis.

Virginia Intermont College

This card was printed in 1950.  The factory-added color is kind of slapdash, but it’s probably reasonably true.  The salesmen made pretty accurate color notes.

Begun in Glade Spring in 1884, the college in Bristol closed in 2014.
