Mayflower Aerogram


This Souvenir Issue of the Mayflower Aerogram shows Mayflower II in Plymouth Harbor on June 21, 1957 as Captain Alan Villiers, Warwick Charlton (the ship’s creator) and Stuart Upham (the ship’s builder) boarding the shallop that will take them to shore for welcoming ceremonies as a flotilla of welcoming boats surrounds the replica.  

The biography of Warwick Charlton, “The Wicked Pilgrim – The True Story of the Englishman Who Gave Mayflower II to America” by Randal Charlton tells the story of the relationship between Mayflower Moving and Project Mayflower.
