1947 Kars Turkey Clothing Merchant Sells Tire For Rubber Shoes Press Photo

You are bidding on an original press photo of Kars Turkey Clothing Merchant Sells Tire For Rubber Shoes. It shows the outdoor merchant selling a tire for 25 lira to a man that will use it to make shoes. Photo measures 7 x 9 inches and is dated 8/8/1947.



These photos have come from different archives that we have acquired in our 8 years of business, most are 50 - 100 years old. We have 3 separate eBay ID's afox11, afox11-auctions & arpten. Please check those accounts out. If there is not anything here that you like now it will more than likely be here later, or on one of the other accounts. For the most part, the photos show only moderate handling faults (if any), some editor's marks, and artist "touch-ups." Please see the scans below which are of the actual photos you will receive as this is the best indication of condition (excluding watermark). The majority of the photographs are fully identified and back-stamped with dates. Please see the frequently asked questions below for answers to regularly received questions.


International Buyers Please Note:
Import duties, taxes, and charges are not included in the item price or shipping cost. These charges are the buyer's responsibility.
Please check with your country's customs office to determine what these additional costs will be prior to bidding or buying. 


Due to increasing postage charges we have adjusted our shipping costs. Our charges are as follows:

USPS First Class Domestic shipping is $3.99 (including Canada), USPS Priority will be $7.99. USPS First Class International shipping is $12.99. Expedited shipping via Priority Mail International is available for $33.95 worldwide. I encourage upgrading to Priority Mail for international orders as First Class may take several weeks for delivery.



***Frequently Asked Questions***

Q:  Do you combine shipping and invoices?
A:  Yes, if you win multiple auctions on one day you will receive a combined invoice with your shipping discount.  If you win auctions on different days, you will receive a consolidated invoice each day you win with all previous purchases. We extend this courtesy out for 10 days and ask that you wrap things up and make payment on outstanding items after those 10 days. We can not combine shipping across accounts. So if you buy 3 photos from each of our 3 different accounts you will get 3 separate invoices and shipping charges. Please know if you do not receive or ask for a combined invoice and pay separate or multiple shipping costs it can not be refunded after the fact. We get charged by eBay once it is paid, please be patient and use the ask for total feature in your eBay cart when buying multiple items.

Q:  How quickly do you ship the items once paid?
A:  We ship within 24 hours of the payment clearing. We use software to manage our auctions and about one-tenth of one percent of transactions do not sync up with Paypal (much to our dismay).

Q:  What are your office hours?
A:  eBay for us is a business. We are open M-F 9 to 5 (CST). Therefore, we do not return e-mails and phone calls over the weekend.

Q:  Where did these originate?
A:  These photographs are from the NEA photo archive.

Q:  Do you re-list items (in case I miss an auction ending)?
A:  As a general rule, items that receive no bids are moved to our store as a fixed-price listing and at a higher price than the starting auction price.

Q:  Do you leave feedback?
A:  Yes--we always leave feedback for buyers. Our software monitors when our buyers leave us feedback, then notifies us that we can leave feedback for the buyer.  Rest assured, if you leave feedback, we will do the same!

Q:  Can the photos be cleaned?
A:  Yes. Grease pencil markings can be wiped off with a dry paper towel (most of which we have already removed).  Permanent marker and "painted areas" can be removed with a baby wipe, Clorox wipe, or denatured alcohol, but BEWARE dampness and photos do not mix! Wipe firmly but briefly then dry immediately. Repeat as necessary.

Q:  Do we make mistakes?
A:  Yes, we absolutely do make mistakes but please be assured if a mistake is made, every effort will be made to make sure it is corrected.
