Vintage Postcards, Aspremont. Meggen, Jaffa and the Taj Mahal

Whilst sorting through my large postcard collection I have decided to digitise them all and share occasionally in addition to my own pictures. I have added them to albums on Flickr and Clickasnap where you can also download copies of them.

The pictures in this post are unposted and undated but I am told they are from between the wars from the 1920's - 30's.

Aspremont Apartments, France
Aspremont is a small village in south-east France, 10km north of Nice with a population of approx. 2190. I have searched for the tower in the background beyond the apartment blocks and I believe it is the tower of the Church of Saint-Jacques le Mejeur.

Jaffa, Isreal
Jaffa (Yafo Hebrew, Yafa Arabic) is a port city in Tel-Aviv, Israel. The picture on the postcard which is unposted so not dated shows the coastline from what is the modern day Tel-Aviv Promenade.

Meggen im Sauerland
Meggen is a mining community of approx. 2900 residents in Lennestadt, Western Germany.

Taj Mahal, India
The Taj Mahal, the most famous picture of the postcards featured. The "Crown of Peace" is a mausoleum close to the Yamuna River, Agra, Indian. Built between 1632 -53 as a tomb by Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan for his favourite wife Mumtaz Mahal.

These postcards are added to the following album as will many others when I have the time.
Use the arrows to navigate the album.

As well as the postcards you can see over 2000 of my images on Clickasnap by clicking here.

I also have a small YouTube channel which you can view or subscribe to here.

A late addition to the postcards I uploaded on the 23rd May 2020, is the following one, I missed when writing the post.
