Port Said – Post Office Street
Steps to Bruhl’s Terrace. Google Street View
This is older postcard. It’s got the space for a message on the front and an undivided back, so before 1908, but I can do a bit better on the image at least.
First a brief history of the stairs (from WIkipedia because it gives the best summary I’ve so far come across).
After the Saxon defeat at the Battle of Leipzig and the occupation by Russian troops, military governor Prince Nikolai Grigorjevich Repnin-Wolkonski ordered the opening [of the terrace] to the public in 1814. He charged the architect Gottlob Friedrich Thormeyer with the building of a flight of stairs at the western end to reach the terrace from Castle Square and Augustus Bridge. The Brühl Palace was demolished in the course of the building of the Saxon Ständehaus in 1900.
The ensemble was totally destroyed in February 1945 when the city centre was heavily hit by the Allied Bombing of Dresden during the end phase of World War II. Today, it has been rebuilt; the precise amount restored is difficult to say as a percentage, but in general one can say the emsemble looks very much the same today as it did in the past.
Eastgate Street, Chester
Blinde-Ezelstraat or Blind Donkey Street, Bruges c.1910
This card is damaged in places (see unedited version below) so it’s hard to read. I think it says
“Chartes-de-Bretagne — the Town. Main street to Rennes.”
This is the church and, as far as I can work out, the same street, Rue de la Poterie, Chartres-de-Bretagne, Brittany
C’est un bien triste Village. (It is a sad village??)
As best I can tell (there’s no Street View in Morocco), this is Rue de la Marine. The tower is the Grand Mosque.
Sign on the wall says “Whitehead Hill”
Walker[?], Vernon Place, Scarboro embossed on front. (This is probably the photographer/publisher.)
