Obama Sells Mortgages

Istanbul_Obama Tram Stop, March 2009

Two months after Obama was inaugurated, his face is making an endorsement for lending rates at a local bank.  The two men are waiting for the arrival of the tram – which pulled up a few seconds after I took this photo. You can see part of Obama’s head in the window of Istanbul Passengers from my previous post.
