Izmir is a major city in Turkey, lying on the western coast on the Aegean Sea. Its ancient name is Smyrna. I have a friend there who sent me these pictures, which are said to be from around 1929. There's another five to go with these, which I'll post sometime soon.
. She also sent me a link to some pictures taken in Izmir in the 1890's. We'll eventually post those as well. I freely admit it - I love old photographs!
