Ephemera

Anna Narly postcards bundle | Souvenir postcards | Coffee culture

Postcards were printed in large numbers around the world in the late 19th early 20th century and were used by people as keep-sakes, such as these from 1919 and slightly later of Smyrna printed during the Greek occupation 1919-22. They in turn provide us with a visual reference of how the cityscape looked like at the time and what those people considered emblematic.
