A view of Boudjah in 1904 from a photo-card, possibly the back parallel street (todays Erdem cad. ?) as the buildings are somewhat humble. Below a view of Boudjah captured by the French (?) photographer, Rubellin, taken 1880.

This postcard view from the 1930s is possibly taken from the Forbes hill, looking towards a landscape difficult to tie in with today. The humble buildings nearby are probably recently erected dwellings of Turkish refugees, and the white building in the background looks like the Orient Catholic seminary in its last period of function.
