Invitation - Reception for Sultan Aziz in London

Invitation to a reception given by the City of London in honour of Sultan Aziz during his stay in London in July 1867. Aziz cultivated good relations with the Second French Empire and the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland and was the first Ottoman sultan to visit Western Europe, in 1867, which included a visit to England, where he was made a Knight of the Garter by Queen Victoria and shown a Royal Navy Fleet Review with his Khedive of Egypt. He travelled by a private rail car, which today can be found in the Rahmi M. Koc Museum in Istanbul. His fellow Knights of the Garter created in 1867 were Charles Gordon-Lennox, 6th Duke of Richmond, Charles Manners, 6th Duke of Rutland, Henry Somerset, 8th Duke of Beaufort, Prince Arthur, Duke of Connaught and Strathearn, Franz Joseph I of Austria and Alexander II of Russia.

View down Rue Ramy toward Column at Marjeh Square, Damascus

View down 'Rue Ramy' toward the Column at Marjeh Square, Damascus, Syria. This bronze column was erected by Sultan Abdul Hamid II to commemorate the opening of the first telegraphic link in the Middle East - the line between Damascus and Medina, and the opening of the Damascus terminal on the Hejaz railway. The monument has a replica statue of the Yildiz Mosque of Istanbul on top. Note the film poster for 'Blonde Venus' starring Marlene Dietrich, which provides us with a very accurate date for the card. Date: 1932
