Photographer's Note

No series of photos from Istanbul can be complete without a visit to Topkapi Palace. For my main photo here is the Salutation gate with a rather unusual sign over the entrance. The sign "Kutlu Olsun" translates as happy Birthday. I don't remember what the sign's significance was. There are, unavoidably, lots of tour groups waiting to enter the main part of the palace.
In the WS are photos of the main external entrance and a courtyard area.
Scanned from negatives.
Thanks to Gert and Malgo for spotting the 75 years - the anniversary of the Republic.
