Constantinople, 1900

Yeni-Djama (ie, Yeni Cami) by moonlight, Constantinople.

Fascinating views of the Turkish city circa 1890–1900 from the Photochrom collection of the Library of Congress. These are from the LoC Flickr selection; the library website has a lot more.

Published primarily from the 1890s to 1910s, these prints were created by the Photoglob Company in Zürich, Switzerland, and the Detroit Publishing Company in Michigan. The richly colored images look like photographs but are actually ink-based photolithographs, usually 6.5 x 9 inches.
