Photographer's Note

Istanbul, the former capital of the Ottoman Empire, once had a large tramway network on both Asian and European side. It first started as horse tram, and gradually changed to electric tram. Many routes were built step by step, and it reached their most widespread network in 1956 with 108 million passengers in 270 shuttles in 56 lines. The tram service began to close in 1956, and was completely stopped in 1966. The tramway service was reintroduced in the years 2000's.
