Object:Tayyare apartment buildings
Description:View of Tayyare Apartmanları in Fatih. The road in the foreground features tram tracks on either side of a line of trees fenced in iron around the lower trunk. In the lower left corner, a man on a heavily loaded donkey has turned his head back towards the apartment building. Three men are walking in the opposite direction: one on the strip between the tramlines and two on the opposite side of the street right in front of the building. The area to the right of the building is undeveloped.
Comment:The vessels loaded on the donkey suggest that the rider is a milkman. Milkmen frequently used donkeys for transport.
