The postcard shown above is actually a "RECO-CARD", hence the hole in the middle. That means it is actually an old record that will play at 33 1/3 rpm like an old LP. The song is listed as "Gin and Coconut Water" by Richie Delamore. The caption on the reverse of the card reads:- "Nassau's waterfront market, where the products of the Bahama Islands and other Caribbean ports are brought for trade and barter."
