1907 Imperial 2nd postal card, front portion of double card, from Szechuan Chu Hsien to England,uprated by CIP 1c and 2c, tied by Szechuan Chu Hsien lunar year cds., along with Suiting, Yichang lunar year, bisected, Shanghai Chinese PO and French PO transit cds. Showing clear postal route. Card with real photo attached on reverse. The mail does not opt to take the Southwest route via Indochine but rather to go for the Eastern route through Ichang, Shanghai and then French PO to England. The mail route is very good in the usage. VF-F.

1907年清二次雙片之正片,自四川渠縣寄英國,加貼蟠龍1分及2分票各一枚,銷四川渠縣干支戳,旁蓋四川綏定干支戳、宜昌干支戳和半切戳、上海中國郵局和法國客郵局等中轉戳,郵路清晰。片背面貼有長江小船老照片。此片不採用西南郵路出越南印支而採取先往東邊經綏定、宜昌轉上海再經法國客郵出口到英國,郵路較好難得。本片是研究四川及中國西南郵路的極佳素材上品。
