index / Markiz is back in business!
T he first half of the 1900s... Grande Rue de Pera, İstiklal Caddesi today... Model T Fords puff along next to the tramline. Stylishly dressed men carrying bouquets and Excelsior umbrellas wait for their sweethearts in front of the mirrored arcade. Or is the matinee about to begin at the Atlas Cinema? The ladies have donned their most beautiful hats, clearly they are going to Markiz after the show... Who has sewn their gowns? Madame Fegara, or was it Kaluvrisi? Toto Karaca, who played Irma in the operetta ’Sürreya’, has opened a little theater known as the Muhsin Ertuğrul Küçük Sahne. Only the best plays make up its repertoire: Of Mice and Men, Waiting for Godot... At Turkuvaz and Rejans dinner is served to the accompaniment of dance music. It’s the golden age of the wineshops and poetry, that sine qua non. Orhan Veli pens his best ones at Nisuaz. And the air is sweet with the scent of lavender!
