White Star Line 'R.M.S Adriatic' Vintage PostcardWhite Star Line 'R.M.S Adriatic' Vintage Postcard

RMS Adriatic was an ocean liner belonging to the White Star Line. She was the fourth of a quartet of ships measuring over 20,000 tons, dubbed The Big Four. She was the first ocean liner to have an indoor swimming pool and Turkish bath. She was launched on 20 September 1906 (the same day as the Cunard Line's Mauretania). She set off on her maiden voyage from Liverpool to New York on 8 May 1907 under the command of Captain Edward Smith. Adriatic remained in passenger service during the First World War. Adriatic left Liverpool for the last time on 19 December 1934, and was scrapped in Onomichi, Japan in 1935. This is an unused Valentine's Series postcard in very good condition.
