Comments:
Apart from the absence of the name of a ship, and the alternative publishers name, the card above is identical, including the embossing, to those Hands Across the Sea postcards produced by Thomas Stevens.
The identical nature of the card reinforces the opinion that Stevens sold complete cards to Alpha, and not just the silk panels.
