An old photocard of the the French customs pier, and views of the harbour from different angles.
Possibly the white prominent building seen above is the Oriental Carpet Manufacturer’s warehouse below.
According to the text connected with this postcard in the book, Izmir Kartpostalları 1900, (Izmir municipality - 2003) ‘...we see an intensively built up area. The building on the far right corner, which can be seen only in part, is Theatre Turque. After a single floor café, we see two three-storeyed buildings, Hotel Egypte and Hotel Londres. Next to café Londres are a café restaurant, Austrian Lloyd Sea Freight Company office, and finally the grand Hotel Huck’. The fire of 1922 reached and destroyed half of these waterfront buildings.
