1907 Jamestown Exposition

U. S. Government Pier

"Official Souvenir"

This beautiful watercolor rendition of the U. S. Government Pier  was an "official souvenir" of the 1907 Jamestown Exposition. Signed simply, "George," it was mailed to Miss Grace REYNOLDS of Rockport, Spencer Co., Indiana. The postmark indicates that it was mailed from Norfolk, Virginia on July 7, 1907.

George's message to Grace was,

We are certainly having an easy time of it. I am going over to see the ocean tomorrow.

George
