Item description

We are pleased to offer this amazing view on a postcard of an early 20th century Nay ship of the line known as a dreadnought of the Delaware Class of Battleships. This postcard view was published by the Enrique Muller Co. of New York City, NY around 1914. The card mentions U.S.S. New York and a bit of research reveals this to be one of the Delaware Class of Battleships. The New York was commissioned on 15 April 1914 with Captain Thomas S. Rodgers in command. The New York saw action in both World Wars, providing gunfire support for amphibious landings at Casablanca in the European Theater, and Iwo Jima and Okinawa in the Pacific Theater. She was decommissioned in 1946 and sunk as a target after surviving two atomic bombs tests in 1946. Enrique Muller was in business from 1898 until 1918 and they were an official photographer for the U.S. Navy. He produced many real photo postcards of naval ships, facilities, and of sailors in their daily routines. As our nation entered the First World War these cards grew in popularity. His photographs were also used by other postcard publishers to create printed postcards. Enrique Mullerโ€™s son Robert, also became an official Navy photographer and took over the family business around 1905. Many real photo postcards were also published of his work. He often went under the name Enrique Muller Jr. The front of this card features a view of the Brooklyn Bridge, the New York Sky Line of 1909 and thew Hudson River with the Battleship under way, being accompanied by a small fleet of tug boats with the piers and docks of the east side across the water. At the top center is the caption, "New York Sky Line showing U.S.S. Dreadnaught New York.". The back of this card is a divided back postcard with a one cent postage rate a for domestic US and the Americas and two cents for everywhere else, in the stamp box. The bottom left bears the publisher's info and copyright and the top left bears a brief description of the view on the front. This card is in near mint condition with crisp sharp corners, no creases or folds and no writing on the card at all. This card was never posted n the mail. This item will look wonderful in your collection of postcards of U.S. Naval vessels, views of the New York Sky Line during the early 20th Century and postcards from Enrique Muller.
