Anchorage Alaska Northwest Orient Postcard with classic old cars

Words written on the back of the 1950's or early 1960's postcard
...........Anchorage, completely modern, is the largest city in Alaska.  It is the gateway to this fabulous vacationland, a paradise for the fisherman and hunter, and take off point for some of the most beautiful sightseeing in the world  Anchorage is only a few swift hours away by Northwest Orient Airlines.

These words have not changed much except Northwest Orient does not exist today.  I love the old classic cars parked and driving down this street.

Karamursel Turkey Vintage Photo of candy store.

I taught for the Department of Defense from 1967 until 1970.  The first year I was at an American Base Karamursel 2 hours from Istanbul.  Here is a photograph of some of my class in front of a candy store in a nearby town also called Karamursel.
Below is a photograph of the American Section of the town of Yalova.  Here you caught the ferry to visit Istanbul.  The second picture shows the American base.  Many years ago 1967 - 1968.
I am always looking for Turkish postcards.
