Constantinople — period unknown — streets and paths of Beyoğlu

4 Nov

Isn’t it cool to see the roads/paths that eventually became the Jadde/Megale Hodos/Istiklâl along the top of the ridge, and the Sıraselviler hugging the side of the hill sloping down towards Karaköy?

    The one by the sea seems to close to the water to be siraselviler

      Ha… Perhaps, and yet it seems to be the perfect distance from the Istiklâl, with a valley between them that would be where Çukurcuma and Tomtom are located today. And the route down to the sea does seem to begin where Taksim is and the slope down to Ayaz Paşa starts and to the dissect Cihangir on its way to the sea the way the Sıraselviler does. But who knows? Thanks very much for your comment! NB
