Looked vaguely familiar

Here is my card. Postally used in 1957

Going to bed now.

Many of the vehicles look very British, but with a French bank in such a prominent position i agree with Les. So.... let’s see if Dijon cuts the mustard?

Given that there weren't many places where electric trams were still operating in France as late as 1957, it could be Nantes.

I suppose it depends how old the postcard (or the photograph) was when it was used! Other French towns discontinued their tramways in the 1950's but whether they were so quick to tarmac over the tracks and take down the cabling is another question.

Q. What does Kadinlar Toplumun Aynasidir mean ?
A: Women are the mirror of the society.

Personal comment: Women are actually part of the society. No civilized explanation as to why something like that would be displayed on the stamps. Probably one of the symptoms of the patronizing approach of the ruling political party.

Too far south! You were much closer at Cuxhaven - a fine port incidentally. I was there once.

You were within 38kms at Cuxhaven. Remember south east.
