The Galata Bridge - Istanbul

The Galata Bridge - Istanbul. The capital city of the Roman Empire between 330-395 AD, in Byzantine times, Byzantium was considered the world centre of civilsation for 600 years. Then having been known under the name of Constantinople, after the declaration of the Republic in 1920s was renamed Istanbul. All business in Constantinople has historically been linked to the Bosphorus, dividing the European side of the city from the Asian side of the city. Istanbul is now the third largest city in the world with a population in excess of 11 million and the only metropolis in the world situated on two continents. Date: circa 1910s

HMS Marlborough - Lining Ships side as the General departs

HMS Marlborough - Lining Ships side as General Harrington departs in his launch - at Dolmabahce, Bosphorus Strait, Istanbul, Turkey. In August 1923, the Allied Powers turned over Istanbul to the Nationalists, marking the final departure of occupation armies from Anatolia. This card marks the occasion of the Allied General's handing over the custody of the city at the Dolmabahce Palace. HMS Marlborough was an Iron Duke-class battleship of the British Royal Navy, named in honour of John Churchill, 1st Duke of Marlborough. Built at Devonport Royal Dockyard between January 1912 and June 1914 and entered service just prior to First World War. Assigned to the Mediterranean Fleet after the war, Marlborough took part in the Allied intervention in the Russian Civil War (in the Black Sea 191920). She was also involved in the Greco-Turkish War.

Indigenous Selk'nam Indian, Punta Arenas, Patagonia, Chile Featured Print

Indigenous Selk'nam Indian, Punta Arenas, Patagonia, Chile

Indigenous Selk'nam Indian of Punta Arenas, Patagonia, Magallanes and Antartica Chilena, Chile - toward the southernmost point on the South American mainland. The Selk'nam, also known as the Onawo or Ona people, were an indigenous people in the Patagonian region of southern Argentina and Chile, including the Tierra del Fuego islands. They were one of the last aboriginal groups in South America to be encountered by ethnic Europeans or Westerners in the late 19th century. In the late 19th century and early 20th century (interestingly the exact date of this card), estancieros and gold prospectors launched a campaign of extermination against the indigenous peoples of Tierra del Fuego, including the almost complete genocide of the Selk, nam, now termed the Selk, nam Genocide. Date: circa 1902
