‘Unageing Istanbul’

The past and present of Istanbul’s historic monuments come together in a recent book, ‘Eskimeyen İstanbul’ (Unageing Istanbul), published by the Culture Department of the Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality under the direction of Nevzat Bayhan.

Included in the book are photos of the city’s mosques, pavilions, palaces, mausoleums and streets which are compared with older photographs of the same sites. The book also contains photographs from the Yıldız Photography Archive compiled by Abdülhamid II together with encyclopedia information on the recently re-photographed monuments.
