[Istanbul Photo Album 2]

An album of photographs of Istanbul, likely images purchased as souvenirs of a trip. See also UL_1734_03 for snapshots believed to be from the same trip. Both albums come from the estate of one Mr. Abramson, a former Consul General of the United States to Canada. There are images from the around the city, from the interior of what is believed to be the Istanbul Archaeology Museum, and one, incongruously, of the Great Wall of China. Some of the images come with type-written captions or information clipped from newspapers or pamphlets. The album and most of the photos are in good condition. Some of the typed captions in the album appear to be from a published guide to Constantinople.
