Big A4 package/envelope arrived in Greece (with bananas??)

from Svenja Wahl in Germany. Look what she found!

A magazine from 1965 that featured the Greek Island of Corfu (KORFU = Kerkira)

...with a map explaining why the island of Kephalonia, south of Corfu, had /has

major earthquakes (1953 big one)

Some very vintage adsinside the magazine, too:

There is a page with old Greek postage stamps...full color:

Like it very much, Svenja! Thank you xxx

Also, there is a great "elephant"/mammoth  card inside too:

Very delicate cutting, the newspaper is a backing,

the elephant/mammoth is a cut-out. Fantastic!

Glad you like!
