Photographer's Note

The Haydarpaşa Terminal or Haydarpaşa Station (Turkish: Haydarpaşa Garı) is a major intercity rail station and transportation hub in İstanbul. It is the busiest rail terminal in Turkey and the Middle East and one of the busiest in Eastern Europe[1]. The terminal also has connections to İETT bus and ferry service. The Moda Tramway is a few blocks south of the station. The station has a main building (opened in 1909) that houses the headquarters of District 1

Haydarpaşa Terminal is the western terminus of the Istanbul-Ankara Main Line and was the western terminus of the former Baghdad Railway (İstanbul-Konya-Adana-Aleppo-Baghdad) and the Hedjaz Railway (İstanbul-Konya-Adana-Aleppo-Damascus-Amman-Medina)[2]. The tracks do not cross the Bosphorus, but there is a train ferry, that carries rail cars from Haydarpaşa, on the Asian side, to Sirkeci, on the European side.(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/%C4%B0stanbul_Haydarpa%C5%9Fa_Terminal). Unfortunately, it was burned on 28th of November 2010.The roof and 4th floor were burned completely.So the frame is black.
