Ancient views
of
Constantinople

(Istanbul) 
5 September
An exemplary compilation of fourteen steel engravings depicts sights and residents of Constantinople  in the year 1839. The drawings were made by the famous British draughtsman William Henry Bartlett  (1809-1854) whose primary concern was to convey "lively impressions of actual sights". Four additional pictures show Turkish with traditional clothing (dervish, water salesman, farmer, street hawker, dancing girl and young lady) and might likewise date from the 19th century.
