This is the new location for Elder's Naval Postcards. It is unfortunate that Yahoo has decided to close GeoCities. I have been with Geocities for 12 years.
For about 15 years I have been collecting world naval warship postcards. I have approximately 2000 postcards. The postcards are mainly pre-1945. The warships are from all over the world, predominantly the United States, Great Britain, France, and Germany. I also own some postcard views of the more famous warships of the 20th Century such as the Bismarck and Emden. Most of the warships in my collection are from the Pre-Dreadnought era (late 1800s to 1906).
I have have access to data on each warship in my collection, from a variety of secondary sources on names, countries, types, classes, dates (laid down, launched, completed or commissioned), maximum recorded speeds, armaments (on completion), crews, displacements (normal/loaded), histories, etc. I have not put this information on my web site because each warships stats would make this site too large and boring. Feel free to request this information or a postcard scan via email for a ship in my collection. You can find which warships I have by checking out my "Postcard Collection" section. If the ship is not in my collection...I'm sorry but I do not have the time to do the research. I am also currently not selling any of my postcards from my collection, but someday plan on putting some up on ebay.
This site is intended to introduce you to naval postcard collecting and naval warship history. Included as well are some information on myself and my other hobbies.
I hope you enjoy browsing through my site.
