The Republic of Cuba (3)
A picture post card which traveled half way round the
world, but still did not reach its destination. Mailed
in Kobe, Japan, on July 29, 1903, the card was originally
addressed to Berlin, Germany. Upon arrival at Berlin,
it was found that the addressee had moved on to Havana.
The card was duly forwarded on August 31. As the handsome
“Div. Carteros, Rec’do/ Habana, Cuba”
postmark shows, it was received in Havana at the letter
carriers division on September 12, 1903.
Vol 2, p.28: Kobe,Japan to Berlin,Germany; reposted to
Havana. 29 July 1903.
The picture side of the card illustrates
in pastel colors, “Arashiyama, 3 Tea Houses, Kioto.”
