Photographer's Note

The Taksim to Tünel nostalgic tramway still trundles up and down İstiklal Caddesi (Independence Avenue) in Beyoğlu. The formerly large metropolitan network of trams operated until 1966, and were only reopened in 1990. The route is relatively short so most people use the new metro lines, although tourists love to ride on these trams. I preferred to walk and take in the sights at my leisure.
