Postcards of the Week: Drydock Dewey, Olongapo, Philippines

This week's postcards come from the Philippines around 1910.  They both show the floating drydock Dewey:

Caption: A cruiser in the monster Floating Dry Dock "Dewey" at Olongapo, Philippines.  This view will give an idea of the enormous size of the "Dewey."

You can see some ancient thumb prints on this postcard, left by someone long ago.  It is a hand-painted one, too.

This other postcard is a plain, uncolored photo.

As always, click the pics for a better view.

You can learn a little bit about the Dewey from its wikipedia article.
