Photographer's Note

My last post showed Taşkpr, the Roman stone bridge in Adana, a large city in southern Turkey near the Mediterranean Sea. Not far from the bridge was a quiet area of narrow lanes leading to the traditional bazaar. Today's main photo shows one such street where it was hard to imagine that Adana was a bustling city, the fourth or fifth largest in Turkey with a population in 1970 of maybe 200.000. Today it has grown to more than 1,7 million, according to various sources.

What used to be the largest mosque in the city is found in the same area. You can see an exterior view in the WS. A much larger mosque was built in the 1990's.

Both photos were scanned from Afacolor CT18 slides. They complete my short series from the Middle East in 1970.
