In honor of this week’s “supermoon,” here is a postcard of the moon over Sandy Bay from around 1910. The image is quite dramatic, with the fishing schooner in the foreground set off by the U.S. Navy warships in the background, all framed by an ominous dark cloud.
Compare this image with this other one showing the sunrise over the warships in Sandy Bay.
Although this card is postmarked, the stamp has been removed and, with it, the date. It is from the 1907 to 1914 era, so I am estimating it to be about 1910. The card was published by Rockport Photo Bureau and printed in Germany.
