"Around the World with Jack L. Carlson" Postcard Album From A Navy Sailor.

Nashville: 1909-1913.

Postcard Album. A faux oblong leather post card album containing 135 extant cards circa 1909 to 1913. Carlson, a sailor, is sending the postcards to Bertha M. Denny in Nashville, Tennessee. Ms. Denny is listed in the 1910 census as being 17 seventeen years old. The front free endpaper contains the title “Around the World with Jack L. Carlson" and pastedown has Ms. Denny’s name and we assume she assembled the album. Several loose cards not secured. The cards include the range of post card production from inexpensive poor quality photomechanical to high quality color embossed card stock and 18 photo post cards of ship life among Carlson’s and his fellow sailors. Ms. Denny has aptly named the album as it visually documents thru the popular medium of post cards Asia, the Caribbean, Central America and both coasts of the U.S. The only geographic lacking a strong presence is Europe. A few of the cards have minor rubbing and shallow chips to the margins but the majority are good to very good condition. It appears Mr. Carlson spent much time in Guantanamo Bay Naval Station with several cards from Cuba. Very good. Item #15887
