Bermuda to Sweden
December 2, 1910

This picture post card was mailed in Hamilton, Bermuda, to Venersborg, Sweden.
This had to be an unusual combination in 1910 although
Bermuda has long been a winter vacation destination.

It includes Christmas wishes.  Knud-Erik kindly translates it as
"Merry Christmas and a happy new year from Gerda."

The stamp is a 1910 1d red caravel (SG 46).
