Jamaica to United States
October 7, 1911

This postal card was sent from Kingston on the south coast of the island of Jamaica.
The "STREET LETTER BOX" cancel indicates that
this postal card went into the mails via a street box for mail collection.
Such cancels are of interest to many Jamaica collectors.

There are no transit or arrival marks indicated for the trip to New York City.

I cannot specifically identify this King Edward VII 1d. postal card
(I don't have H&G to permit further identification)
