Vintage postcards of ships

Vintage postcards of ships is another massive subcategory and unfortunately I do not the time right now to cover it in any detail. However, I thought these two artist drawn postcards were good examples and worth sharing. The first is of the steamship S.S.Viking entering the Harbour, Douglas, Isle of Man, c.1907, by an unknown artist.

The second is the R.M.S.Narkunda of the P&O line, c.1936, by the artist John H Fry, and published by J.Salmon Ltd, number 3216.

What I especially like about these two postcards is the use of colour, particularly the purple-blue sunset in the first card.
