Moïse Jsraelowitz Constantinople Éditeur

Istanbul (Constantinople), Turkey (Publisher)

The Istanbul (Constantinople) firm of Moïse Jsraelowitz Constantinople Éditeur, which employed the initials M.J.C. and M.I.C., was located at Hamidiye caddesi 81, Istanbul, and was the second largest photographer/publisher of postcards (after Max Fruchtermann) in the Ottoman capital during the two decades before the outbreak of the First World War. The firm produced approximately 800 to 1000 different picture postcards during those years. The M.I.C. [Moïse Israelowitz Constantinople] initials were used on postcards published for Adrien's Post Card which were reproductions of watercolor paintings by the German painter Georg Wagenführ (1871–1950).
