Seller: poglepie (15.847) 100%, Location: King's Lynn, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 263263821957 These seven postcards all depict views of the Forbidden City in Beijing (formerly Peking) in China. The cards were in an album of cards that had been collected by someone whilst on a "Round the World Cruise" on board the Canadian Pacific ship, the "Empress of Scotland" in 1926 / 1927. From the itinerary leaflet that was with the album, I can say that the cruise started on 13th November 1926 and finished on 23rd April 1927. It visited Chinwangtao ( from which a tour to Peking was arranged) between 20th February 1927 and 26th February 1927. Written in ink on the bottom border of five cards is "The Forbidden City" in ink. The publisher is the Museum of the Board of Interior, China. Not postally used. Excellent cards for a collection. The cards are overall in a Very Good condition. Small rubs at corners, the odd tiny crease at corners, ridges at top left hand corners of cards with some lighter ridges at some other corners, light edge rubs with the odd tiny bump, some light grubbiness to borders with the odd tiny mark and small, light mark, the odd tiny mark to front of cards, light grubbiness and some tiny marks on reverse of cards with the odd tiny brown spot. Please check scans carefully as they help with condition too.Note surface mail or first class inland mail options are always available, please ask for a quote.
