EDITORS COMMENTS
Rue Tepentziki, a Small Backstreet: A Glimpse into Izmir's Past (Izmir, Turkey - Circa 1910) This evocative photograph captures the essence of Rue Tepentziki, a narrow and picturesque backstreet in the heart of Izmir, Turkey, during the Greek Occupation. The image, taken circa 1910, offers a glimpse into the city's rich history and the daily life of its residents during the Ottoman Empire. The photograph reveals a tranquil scene, with the sun casting long shadows over the cobblestone street. A lone policeman, dressed in the uniform of the Ottoman Empire, stands guard at the end of the street, his stern expression hinting at the authority and order he represents. The street is lined with low, whitewashed houses, their wooden shutters closed against the afternoon sun. The occasional flash of color from a hanging laundry or a vibrant door adds a touch of warmth and character to the scene. The presence of the Greek flag, flying proudly from one of the houses, serves as a reminder of the city's complex history. Izmir, also known as Smyrna, has a rich and diverse cultural heritage, with Greek, Turkish, and other communities coexisting for centuries. The Greek Occupation, which lasted from 1912 to 1922, was a tumultuous period in the city's history, marked by conflict and displacement. Despite the challenges of the past, Izmir has emerged as a vibrant and dynamic city, known for its rich history, stunning architecture, and warm hospitality. This photograph, with its intriguing details and evocative atmosphere, offers a fascinating glimpse into the city's past and the people who called it home over a century ago.
