photoblog image Old Istanbul

Old Istanbul

 

Taken on, I think my first trip to Turkey in the 1980s, probably with my Canon A1.  These Ottoman Epire house are probably now long gone.

You were pretty good with a camera, even as a Lad, Tom.
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Ray.

a fine photograph

looks as if it was a very nice neighborhood. i love row houses and the fence and rock wall are all so inviting.
Tom Wilson: I think it would have been quite high class originally, but at the time it was far from that!
I hope they're not gone- I hope they've been refurbished!
Tom Wilson: I doubt it, Elizabeth - the urge to 'modernise' has been so great in Turkey and only the major monuments survive.

They look charming. As you say, probably long gone and replaced with a modern shopping complex
Tom Wilson: Indeed - a sad thought.
Archiving such material pays dividends eventually.
Tom Wilson: Yes, it's good to feel that these old pics aren't lost forever.
I am enjoying your scanned prints, Tom.
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Larry
They certianly look to have been quite old at the time you visited so yes, they have probably gone by now.
Tom Wilson: I fear so, Brian.
Looks as if it could have been taken in the 1880s Tom
Tom Wilson: Just about, Bill - although I'm not THAT old!
stunning shot, Tom. i love this angle through the bare trees, very well shot!
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Ayush.
