This album has been prepared and published by the Municipality of Greater İstanbul, through its cultural institution “Kültür AŞ”, and IRCICA. It contains 576 photographs of İstanbul taken at the end of the 19th-beginning of the 20th century and showing districts, buildings, scenes of social life and economic activity. These photographs were selected from the Yıldız Photograph Albums, which comprise a total of around 35000 photographs taken all over the Ottoman empire at the time. Their reproductions were made, classified and annotated by IRCICA. The album is supplemented with an introduction on the history of photography, information on the photographers having worked in various parts of the Ottoman empire and photograph studios,
and an index arranged according to the photographers.
