The couple were aboard the oceanliner Malolo, heading to Hawaii and honeymoon bliss; we know this from the snipe below the photo:

(Actually, the honeymoon wasn’t that filled with bliss, a precursor of what was to come. Carole became ill while in Hawaii, and the marriage dissolved slightly more than two years later, though Lombard and Powell remained amicable.)

This photo is vintage, from the Acme syndicated agency, as proven by the printing on the back:

(The “United Press International” stamp shows it had been retained for several decades, since the United Press merged with Hearst’s International News Service in 1958.)

This vintage image measures 7″ x 9″, and bidding begins at a quite reasonable $14.95, although the auction won’t close until 10:08 p.m. (Eastern) Wednesday.
