A pair of 2 sen kikus on postcard from Imperial Naval College, Etajima to the United Kingdom


A postcard, sent in 1902 to England from 安芸江田島 (Imperial Naval College) Etajima, Japan. It was meant as a Christmas greeting to Mrs. Murial G. Horsfall. I have a bit of work to do on this cover and will update here as I find more information.

The city/town name of Barrow-in-Furness in England is known for shipbuilding. According to an article about the city on Wikipedia, "Well-known ships built in Barrow include Mikasa, the Japanese flagship during the 1905 Russo-Japanese War".
