Welcome to War and Tactics!    War and Tactics Forum is currently undergoing some modifications that might disable features you are used to. This is unabvoidable as we have to update the forum engine to a new structure that is incompatible with many of the features we had used so far. The good news: WaT will be more secure and stable, and most of the features we uninstalled will be a natural part of the new structure anyway. For the rest we will be looking for solutions.

I love this type of postcard--one sent my a regular service member writing home to show something that's important to him or part of his daily life.
This postcard is from C. Eckhardt of the USS Denver and shows a panoramic view of Mazatlan Mexico (or as he writes "Maztland")  On the back of this we see he's written this message: "Maztland Aug. 14th 1916  A very good voew of Matzland taken from one of the high hills w[h]ere they have hidden several large guns [signed] C.E."
It appears to me that his is not 'taken from a nearby hill' as the angle is so sharp and the buildings in the extreme foreground are so close.
