Reverse of a photograph of the ship, printed on post card stock, and featuring an undated message from a Sailor to his sister, Mrs. Edgar Hallett of Dorchester (Boston), Massachusetts, concerning his service in the ship's dynamo room. See Photo # NH 105913 for a view of the front side of this card.
A second postcard, with an identical photograph, remains in the posession of the donor. Postmarked on Hancock on 2 December 1910, it features a message from the same Sailor to his mother, Mrs. Martha McCreedy, also of Dorchester, concerning his assignment to the ship for the next five months. Hancock was then the Receiving Ship at the New York Navy Yard.
