STEAMER HUNTINGTON : HUNTINGTON, LONG ISLAND, NEW YORK : RPPC (1910)

This vintage real photo postcard features the steamer “Huntington”. The ship was photographed as she travelled through Huntington Harbor, in Huntington, Long Island, New York. The 125 foot boat was built in 1888. It had a regular run between Huntington and Pier 36 in New York City. The ship also made two trips each summer, across the Long Island Sound to Norwalk, Connecticut. In addition, the steamer “Huntington”, was also chartered for excursion parties by local residents. In 1913, the ship was bought by the George W. Bush & Sons Company. The firm was located in Wilmington, Delaware. The steamer was used to transport freight down the Delaware River. After changing ownership a number of times, the ship was scuttled in 1938. This postcard was published by D. W, Trainer. The card was printed in Germany. The message on the postcard was written in 1910. This 110 year-old postcard is in very good condition (see scans).
