Vintage postcard, Accademia Navale, Naval Academy, Livorno
Two 1929 postcards with a funny depiction of the cadet's efforts to get at the end of their courses at the “Accademia Navale” (Naval Academy) of Livorno.

As you may notice, for the first time these postcards are superimposed with the address of the blog. This is because I am getting really tired of the usual serial leechers re-posting these images without any credits.

Those cool postcards have an almost Japanese quality to them.
