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.

The Potomac river Cruise aboard the S.S. Mount Vernon is acclaimed as one of the nation's most scenic boat trips. This luxury cruise liner sails daily for trips to Mount Vernon home of George Washington, and Marshall Hall Amusement Park, Maryland's famous private playground.
Probably this postcard is from 1950's or 1960's.

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.

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.

It is nice to find a new sewing Craft Magazine that is not overly expensive. A good price at only
$3.99 and a years subscription (bi monthly) is about $12.95. I found this copy at Hobby Lobby.
