Rattler 1851

Post by Alessandro » Fri Apr 18, 2014 10:17 am

Dear Friends,
I'm a studious of Maritime Postal History and I'm searching information regarding the SS Rattler, recorded on Mediterranean Line from Liverpool on 1851. I don't find info regarding this steamship in this year. On Lloyd Register there is only a Rattler Bark (1846) and a Rattler launched on 1855.

I don't think this was the famous "Rattler vs Alecto" because the tonnage it's different.

Attached here a letter from London to Leghorn travelled on board of Rattler, and an advertising published on Corriere Mercantile of Genua on 1851.

Thank you for any information, sorry for my poor english.
