Me too. Even bought a guide book once, but that was as far as we got! Very expensive.....

Next card -something different. Where is this?
No exact date for this, might make it too easy - make your own estimate.

Addressee's son ?
Addressee's son ?


It functioned as an hotel from the 1930's until it closed in 2008. As mentioned above it has since been demolished.

Going off the blurb I guess that neither me nor Bill would have stayed there on our imaginary trip's to Bermuda:

About the Hotel:

An elegant manor house and surrounding cottages dating from 1815, Waterloo House rests on a gracious estate of terraced gardens directly on Hamilton Harbour. This hotel is within walking distance of many of the island's best known cultural attractions. Those seeking luxury and privacy will enjoy a tranquil holiday with accommodations that feature period furnishings, the latest in modern amenities, and fine dining under the direction of an award-winning chef.

I haven't quite ever got to Hamburg whilst on my travels (I was on a train which was going there once but I got off before it reached it's destination).

Hamburg is the wrong town and it is in the wrong state.
