MEXICO. "SPECIAL EXCURSION / MEXICO-AMERICAN LAND CO." sepia-tone postcard with red
caption, mailed December 20 1910 at Bunkerhill Kansas by Mabel Ely to Mr.
Don Ely in Galion Ohio, upper left front corner reduced slightly by sender's
scissors cut to separate it from a panoramic view, hint of cancel ink on
front. The company, based in Kansas City, was previously unsuccessful at
establishing a canal across the Isthmus of Tehuantepec in Oaxaca State. But
this scene is not in Oaxaca. There are only 8 snow-capped peaks in Mexico. The silhouettes of the volcanic mountains in the distance definitively
place this scene in Veracruz State, looking towards the west at the
foothills & Volcán Citlaltépetl (dormant since 1687 & North America's third
highest peak). Apparently the original panoramic view
(of which this was part) was distributed to by-then quite probably
disgruntled investors to prove there was land worth developing in Veracruz
State -- with its flat terrain & reasonable roads having some appeal to
farmers. Any material on this company is scarce: most of it is in Spanish,
and images such as this are unheard of today.

SOLOMON ISLANDS. "OH4ML / H44" Ringl Cove Golombangara Island shortwave QSL postcard with SRAL & EUDXF logos in blue on front, used 1989 by operator Mauri Lehtosaari from Hartola Finland, excellent condition. The names of the locations are often seen as Ringgi Cove on Kolombangara or Kulambangara, but in any case this stratovolcano has very few inhabitants. These are the only items we have ever seen from there in 30 years of dealing. (2 available) $4.50each. sv
TRISTAN DA CUNHA.

McCormick" with a handwritten 'A view from our dining hall' added in the front; sepia-tone real photo postcard showing some Washington scenery with the unmistakable silhouette of stratovolcano Mount Rainier prominent in the distance (as seen from the northeast, therefore probably from nearby Keechelus Lake in the foreground). Mailed 1915 from Berkeley California by a passenger writing aboard the S.S. Northern Pacific -- which exclusively sailed the Astoria Oregon to San Francisco route of the Spokane, Portland & Seattle Railway -- returning from a stay near the pictured scenery. Both the Lake and Mount Rainier are near Seattle. Rarely offered. partly because the caption is vague, and partly because the vantage point would have to be researched (as we did). $15.00 r(s)s(c)w(m)vm
