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.

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.

Who are they? Where are they? When?
Long coats seem to be the fashion along with suits in the early 1900's. Not the fashion for snow today. Looks like they may have their dress shoes on. First group of men was in previous post. Family or group photos were popular then and made into postcards.

This photo postcard is kind of intriguing. 10 standing men with one man in a wheel chair. What job does the woman have on the porch? Is she the owner of the house and has boarders. Is it a club and she is the cook?

Love all the old buildings you find on Real Photo Post Cards. It gives you the idea of what architecture was like in the early 1900s. This is an unidentified house but card was purchased in Old Sacramento so maybe it is from this capital city of California.
