Found on EBay – Great White Fleet


  Great White Fleet  

A postcard showing a barbecue for sailors during the Great White Fleet’s visit in 1908 has been listed on EBay. This was a huge event in turn of the century Los Angeles, and I had fun exploring The Times’ coverage. Commemorative postcards usually feature ships, and I have seen one postcard of a boxing match, but this is a new one to me. Bidding starts at $4.95.
