The Delaware & Hudson Railroad System built and operated the Sagamore (Length 223', beam 57', speed 20 mph) from the early 1900's to about the late 1930's. She held 1500 passengers and was considered at the time one of the finest sidewheel steamboats. Not without her share of problems as running aground in 1909 and 1912 and being involved in an accident in 1920 killing 2 passengers in a rowboat that the Sagamore ran into. The card has a mailing date of 1944 from Pittsfield Mass. and still retains the $.01 stamp. Card is in very good condition. There is some writing on the bottom white border. This is a white border card that dates it between 1920 & 1935. See all my great listings.
