Newly cataloged for our Jewish Salonica Postcard Collection: Salonique, type de vieux juif – a historical postcard depicting an old Jewish man in traditional dress standing in the middle of a street in Salonica, the famous Balkan port-city located on the shore of the Aegen Sea. Some evidence from the picture allows us to established that it was taken between 1912-1917.
