Baleen whale - Whales and Whaling pictures 42

Previous | Next

Another postcard of the whaling industry, this time of a baleen whale (probably a blue) being hauled up a slip-way to be processed. The card is labelled "Kava" which I am informed:

The word that is interpreted as "kava" is in fact Russian word "kit" (китъ) written according to the spelling rules used until 1918. Kit (кит) is the Russian for whale.

...rather than being the name of the whaling station that I previously assumed incorrectly  - with thanks to Elena Grant.
