Wreck of Tahoma in Alaska
Rare photo post card of the wreck of the U.S. Revenue Cutter Tahoma in the Aleutian Islands in Alaska on Sept. 20, 1914 when this post card was made. The card was never used and never mailed. It is over 100 years old and is in excellent condition. The following year, in 1915, the Revenue Cutter Service and the Life Saving Service were merged to create the U.S. Coast Guard.
