The ship funnels seen in the woven silk of the postcard are pale brown with black tops (used 1906-1921) which dates the postcard to the same period of issue as the First Class Passenger List, thus both were likely acquired onboard. The postcard is not recorded in Godde or Sprake and is found only on an unpublished list by John High. Ref. stevengraphsdotcom. The passenger list for this voyage of the Metagama includes the names of all of the first class passengers and has multiple Canadian Pacific ads for their services, railway and hotels, etc., as well as the various plans and contact information for "... some six million acres of choice farm lands for sale in Western Canada at low prices, and long terms of payment.". An unusual pairing of some very scarce, post-WWI shipping ephemera.
