Photographer's Note

Whatever happened to this young couple, walking along the Bosphorus on a sunny day in late August 1974? Did they eventually marry? Are they maybe grandparents today? In any case they should be around 60 today.

This is from the Asian side of Istanbul in the district of Üsküdar, looking north towards the brand new Bosphorus bridge. This very first bridge across the Bosphorus was opened the year before, in 1973, and connects Ortaköy on the European side with Beylerbeyi in Asia. Now there is since long a second bridge further north, and a third one is planned.

This was scanned from a Kodachrome slide.
