For this week's theme, I have a bus from Romania . . .
and a cover celebrating Blackpool trams . . .
The National Tramway Museum looks a fun day out (here's a link to their website - I haven't been and don't have any connections, but it looks as though it opens for the season this weekend, timely posting of the cover).
Early 1960s for this street corner snapshot, where in addition to the Lyons Tea advertising beneath the corner shop window, there's an ad for Craven "A", a time when cigarette ads were allowed to say things like, 'will not affect your throat'.
The mini has the registration plate letters BJT and the year letter B, which puts the location of registration in Dorset and the year 1964, so I would say this snapshot is towards the end of the 1960s.
At first the paper on the lap made me think they were eating chips, but on closer inspection, I think it's sandwiches (probably wrapped in greaseproof paper). As for what was on the sandwiches . . . potted meat?
Last week I had a stamp with Dr Theodor Bilharz, this week I'm staying with medicine for the theme of 'women on stamps', I have two stamps with nurses. The first one was issued by Cuba in 1957 to remember Victoria Bru Sanchez (1876 - 1918), a nurse who died whilst fighting the influenza epidemic of 1918. In 1924 the 3rd of June, the day of her birth, became 'Nurses' Day' in Cuba.
The next stamp is Polish and appears to be connected with nursing and children, though I don't know the specifics.

a Morris 1100, the HHV number plate indicates registration in the London area (the London Transport bus just coming into view leads one to believe it is still in that area), the letter D gives the year of registration as (from October) 1966. So the photo could be any time from the late 60's to early 70's on a cold but sunny day.
This snap may take us into the early 1960s. Parked cars (from left to right) are a black car (I revert to naming a car by its colour when I don't know the make ;) ), a mini traveller, a triumph herald and that may be the nose of Ford cortina.
For this week's free choice, I have an FDC from Egypt commemorating the centenary of the death of Dr Theodor Bilharz, who discovered the worm responsible for the disease often referred to as bilharzia. (wiki link).
