Through the tunnel

This view of the Alps through the tunnel is almost magical. It’s quite common to see this postcard, but not often with a car in the centre. I see that the driver is leaning over looking for something; a marker so that the car is in the right position for the photo perhaps?

A Clear view of the Eiffel Tower

This is a postcard of the Eiffel Tower taken before 1903. It was bought on the 2nd floor of the tower and stamped to prove it. My 22 year old son told me that he thought that the smoke coming out of the chimneys was strange. It wasn’t so long ago that smoke like that was a common site. What I really wanted him to notice was the clarity of the image. Unfortunately my scanner doesn’t do justice, but it gives a good idea as to how in focus the image is.
