I have this one listed as the AUGUSTUS B. WOLVIN.

I've got a card identical to this but with some writing on the front and postally used from Cleveland, May 2, 1908. This is an 'undivided back card' - which dates it to 1907 or earlier. Please see the following site for great info on dating post cards: www.emotioncards.com/museum/history.html

I suspect this is more likely to be the A. B. Wolvin, launched at the Globe Shipyard at Cleveland in 1900, rather than the Augustus B. Wolvin, launched at Lorain. cf http://images.maritimehistoryofthegreatlakes.ca/32399/data?n=32
