Fotoğraf : Board misyonerlerinin kız okulu , or Kīz Kolej, Maraş
Marash Girl received a link to this photo in her email this morning. It is a photo of the school that Marash Boy's mother Azniv attended in the early 20th Century, and the school that Marash Girl's grandmother Yester Bosnian Vartanian attended (she must have boarded at the school as her home was in Aintep), before becoming a teacher. Marash Girl had always heard reference to the school, and now, for the first time, a lifetime later, she has the opportunity to see a photograph of the Girls School (a rarity at the beginning of the 20th century), albeit in an ancient photo. She wonders if either her grandmother or Marash Boy's mother are in the photo!
