Photographer's Note

Nostalgic tram of Istanbul is the heritage tramway systems of Istanbul, Turkey. The city has two completely separate heritage tram systems, one on the European side, the another on the Asian side.
Istanbul, the former capital of Turkey, once had a large tramway network on both the Asian and European sides. These started as horse trams but gradually changed to electric. Many routes were built step by step, and the network reached its greatest extent in 1956 with 108 million passengers in 270 shuttles in 56 lines. But like most cities around the world the tram service began to close in 1956, and completely stopped in 1966.
Trams returned in Istanbul in 1990. The city is divided between Asia & Europe. The Asian side has a heritage tram system, and the European side has both heritage tram & modern tram systems.
