The year is 1911 and we're still travelling down the Canal. The postcard depicts a mosque in Port Said, but our sender Hugh was kind enough to stick the stamps on the front of the postcard and the cancellation is Port Taufiq, so although he (probably) bought the postcard in Port Said, he didn't mail it until the ship reached Suez. The recipient was a Miss Marjorie Sanders whose family ran a boarding house on Victoria Parade, in Torquay, Devon. The message reads:
"We are going through the Canal. get to Suez tonight. How's Torquay looking up."
