Royal Bombay Yacht Club: a vintage Christmas card, circa 1930s/40s
The 5 x 4 inch card has the club burgee in blue and gold to the front and is tied with ribbon of the club’s colours. It opens to reveal a tipped in photograph giving an aerial view of the club and the Gateway of India monument. It is signed on the left Salaams to you both, Bill Hickey. It is in very clean condition with just a mark to the reverse of the rear card where it has been tipped into an old album. may8/2 SOLD 23rd May 2020
The Club still thrives today and, rather miraculously, retains its title, unlike so many institutions founded in the days of the Raj.
