And now, a side trip to neighboring Aintep in 1919

A 1919 photo of a pedestrian alleyway in Aintab, the city of Marash Girl's mother's family. With a fully covered woman, it must be in the Turkish section during the period of the Armenian defense battles. Note the open drain/gutter in the middle of the alleyway!
