Peterborough Postcard 1927

Sometimes the back of old Edwardian postcards are more interesting than the front. This card, dated 18th October 1927, reads “Greetings from Peterborough Oct 18 1927. sailing from Liverpool Eng today Oct 21 1927” …… from the days when overseas travel meant by sea rather than by air. 

A little research found this to be US born teacher Alice Maude Okey who travelled out on the Canadian Pacific line’s SS Montclare from Liverpool to Montreal courtesy of a ticket purchased from Thomas Cook & Son, London !
