Old Ironsides

Sent by Postmuse (the USA).

Postcard sent as a thank you for my contribution to her amazing Orphaned Postcard Project.

This ship, nicknamed Old Ironsides had a long life fighting pirates in the West Indians and participating in some wars. Now it is a museum, and Bonnie wrote that is one of her favourites sites in Boston. Easy to believe!

I love especially the matched stamps:

  1. One of the things I like most about visiting the USS Constitution is that going onboard is FREE :) And, there are real sailors on that ship since it is a US Navy ship, and they are happy to answer questions and are very knowledgeable.


Thank you for coming. All your comments make me extremely happy.
