Description

Picture postcard to Lismahagow with KGV 1/2d tied by “GK & ARDRISHAIG PACKET / A” c.d.s. with the ships name removed, used on the outward morning sailing of the steamer (probably the “Columbia”, which took over the service from the “Iona” in August 1916).  This datestamp without the steamer name is only recorded in 1916-17, the code “A” c.d.s. being particularly scarce.
