Postcard titled "Mimi on the Beach" 1913
This postcard was made from an early photo of the ship on the sand and Mrs. Blanche Wood standing next to it.

The Mimi came ashore on the sand spit, and rested there until an attempt to float it again failed. The lady in the photo is Mrs. Blanche Wood, wife of the photographer, John Wood. A caption was added to this copy of the photo. "Lady Beachcomber"…
