45 Color Pics Capture Street Scenes of Istanbul in the Early 1970s

Istanbul is the most populous city in Turkey and the country's economic, cultural and historic center. It is a transcontinental city in Eurasia, straddling the Bosporus strait (which separates Europe and Asia) between the Sea of Marmara and the Black Sea.

Istanbul is one of the world's most populous cities, ranking as the world's fourth largest city proper and the largest European city. Its commercial and historical center lies on the European side and about a third of its population lives in suburbs on the Asian side of the Bosporus.

Istanbul is a bridge between the East and West.
