I am guessing it refers to No3 Muster Station. Card numbers usually say something like "No 3 of 10" etc. From the length of the skirt of the lady at extreme left, and the 'knickerbockers' of the lad in the centre, I would say well before the '30s - WW1 perhaps? It looks like the mast of a WW1 era warship in the distance.

Muster Station

I recently picked up this card and would like to know more about it.



I'm not sure if the 'No.3' refers to Muster Station No.3, or is the third card in a series.  I was trying to work out where in the dockyard it was/is, and if it still exists. I'm also wondering if anyone has any ideas on date (I', thinking maybe 1930s?)

Also, what was the purpose of the Muster Station?
