Scope and content

Photograph is numbered 3487. The typed caption in the album reads, "Bagdad Kiosk, to which the Sultan withdraws to rest, when he comes in mid-Ramazan to worship at the Shrine of the Prophet's Cloak, is the next place show to victors. It is said to have been built by Sultan Murad IV. in the style of a Kiosk which he had seen at Bagdad, and which had taken his fancy. Its walls are artistically decorated with blue tiles of the best workmanship, and all the inside of the cupola is covered with deerskin. The inland mother-of-pearl arabesques on the doors, divans, and chairs, are worth seeing. The inlaid silver inscription on the chairs is Padishahim chock Yashah, meaning 'Long life to my Emperor.' Bagdad Kiosk commands a splendid view of the harbour, Galata and Pera."
