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.
