Thanks for the lovely pictures and music to cheer us all up.
Dear Wiggins,Many thanks.- Aangirfan
Not only enjoyed the wonderful imagesBut got a hearty ironic chuckle as I came to the antique 'visit Palestine' posterWhat could have been ...In 1900-1908 the Ottomans built their famed Hejaz railway line, on which, after going from Istanbul to Damascus, you could pass right on through what is now Syria, Palestine, Israel, Jordan and Saudi Arabia, till you reached the Muslim holy city of MedinaApparently a safe and friendly and easy trip for a few years ... unthinkable todayWhy did we lose a world where that kind of railway journey was not just possible but pleasant as well?
Yes, the visit Palestine poster is interesting. Thanks for your information.- Aangirfan.
Thanks Aang,I do love turn of the century illustration. Arthur Rackham, NC Wyeth, Charles Dana Gibson, et al. They have a je-ne-sais-quoi that no one seems to possess anymore.ciao ciao
Very many thanks.From Aangirfan.
It reminds of my old postcards from the WWII that my father brought back home. Some great images of Alexandria, and those beautiful Italian girls in the postcards.
Yes, the old postcards are fascinating.- Aangirfan
