A view from the landing stage at Cibali towards the Haliç Tersanesi ( shipyard ) at Bedrettin on the Beyoğlu shore. A lot of the buildings on both sides of the waterway were swept away in the 1980s - but this yard, which built many of the Bosphorus ferries, survives.
On the skyline to the left stand the Odakule tower and what is now the Marmara Pera hotel, both of the mid-1970s, whilst to the right is the solitary Galata Tower of 1348.
