If Florence were on the sea

From a vintage set of postcards showing landmark architecture in Firenze, as if each structure was on a waterfront.  The postcards date to sometime before the postwar period:



Landmarks named include, above, the church of Orsanmichele



Piazza del Duomo



Above, the Palazzo delle Poste, the modern post office building




The Palazzo Pitti



The Duomo, aka, Santa Maria del Fiore




The Piazza della Signoria




Above the Loggia dell’Orcagna (misspelled on the postcard as loggia dell’Orgagna); aka Loggia dei Lanzi



The Piazzale Michelangelo



The Piazza Vittorio Emanuele, name changed to Piazza della Repubblica sometime after WWII.
