View down a narrow street in Bursa with two-story houses with shuttered windows and second-floor balconies on either side. Six pedestrians are walking on the sidewalk and in the street and a carriage or wagon pulled by one horse is being guided by a man. A tall cypress-like tree and mountain are visible in the distance.
The handwritten list of images may be seen on the image with ark no. 21198/zz002hftdx
This photograph was most probably taken in 1895, when William Sachtleben was in Turkey to investigate the disappearance of cyclist Frank Lenz who had last been seen near Erzurum. Notes accompanying negatives indicate that during this trip, Sachtleben was in Bursa and travelled from Trabzon to Erzurum. Sachtleben's 1891 photographs of his bicycle tour across Asia have a circular format.
