Ottoman Day Calendar Sheet

Christoph Päper-2
Dear calendarists

For an interesting artifact from a truly multicultural region, see this tweet that shows the calendar sheet for a single day in the Ottoman Empire shortly before World War 1, little over 100 years ago.

By the way, are any of you actively tweeting about calendar stuff on Twitter?

   Whoever annotated that picture should have written Nisan 22
   instead of Kislev 22.

Indeed, this has been pointed out in the comments on Twitter as well.
