    The Bosphorus ferries

     

    I took my first Bosphorus ride in 1972 on a coal-fired ferry named after Küçüksu Palace. Since then, I've boarded other Bosphorus ferries—but the old steam-powered beauties with the raked smokestack and the wooden decks are all gone, some of them after 70 years of service. Here you will find some pictures of the modern-day diesel ferries plying the Bosphorus and a black and white photo of a beautiful oldie, long gone to a shipbreaking yard.
