This and all other postcards I would ever post all came from a yard sale a neighbor was having when I first moved to town two years ago. I haggled a photo book nicely loaded with them from $10 down to $5.
This card features the First U.S. Battleship "Indiana" and made by SL & Co. Germany. The required price printed to mail a post card was one cent.
This ship was first commissioned November of 1895, and last decommissioned in January of 1919, and sunk as target in 1920, and sold for scrap in 1924. She served in the Spanish American War and and when recommissioned during WWI used as training ship.
