Péčko-18 Steamboat

The widely used Péčko (or P-type for propeller type steamboats) boats were cutting edge technology of its time. They belonged to the most frequently used boats on the Czech stretch of the Vitava and Labe Rivers.

Just a note that I have difficulty commenting from this blog (or browser?) on some of your blogs, so, to make it consistent, all my comments will originate from the VioletSky blog. But, don't let that stop anyone from commenting here!

Next week for Valentines, the theme is anything that looks Valentine-y or romantic.
It could be anything from the traditional wine, chocolate, roses, or something that depicts a romantic get-a-way...


  1. I like the perspective they use, makes me want to hop on board.

    1. I wouldn't have looked that closely at the perspective without your comment, Joy. The shop looks like it is floating in milk. A good way to focus on the subject, rather than its surroundings.

  2. I would have not looked at Czechoslovakia as a source of ship/boat stamps. The view is much more informative that a shot from the side.

  3. I rather like that. It's a nice simple design.
