Taksim Maydami (Square) Istanbul Turkey - Vintage Postcard

When I visited this square in Istanbul it looked much like this, although I do not know the age of this postcard.  (I was there in 1967)I found online on Wikipedia a modern picture of Taksim Square and it looked much different.  It also stated that the photo was taken from Burger King.  Now that is a change.

Maple Leaf Frame of couple on RPPC

Photography was very popular in the early 1900's and personal postcards were popular.  The more unique the better.  Using a stencil type mat and framing a photo was one idea this photographer had.  Here a maple leaf encloses this man and woman.

Odds and Ends - Collectibles

Vintage Finger Puppets

Miniature size cardboard Food Props

I think those drivers on lower right hand corner are wondering is this load too heavy!

I am a little behind in writing on my blog.  Busy with a lot going on.  Now it is the 
water heater which needs some parts this morning. Sure hope we do not have to call the plumber.  It feels like August, still warm to hot days but the nights are a little cooler.
