The old Galata bridge

A detail from the Istanbul Design Week held annually on the old Galata bridge. Precisely, a hundred years ago it was referred as the new Galata bridge by Owen William in his photo, Ode to the new bridge. The old bridge connecting two sides of Halic, the Golden Horn, was burned down in 1991. Rejuvenated and moved further up to Hasköy, the bridge now hosts festivals every year.
