Photographer's Note

The view of historical elevator among concrete apartment buildings. This shot was taken from a boat. "The Elevator", was built in 1907 to allow people to climb the elevated part of the area that is separated by the coastal strait by a steep cliff with a total of 155 stairs. It is one of the principal landmarks of Izmir. Now there is a nice restaurant-cafe in the place that the elevator reaches. The street where Elevator is situated is named Dario Moreno Street, in memory of the singer-composer who had actually bought a house for his mother in that street and had lived there during the first phases of his fame.

Yapilmadan once 155 basamak merdivenle buraya ulasiliyordu. Izmir'in onemli sembollerinden birisidir. Asansorle cikilan yerde simdi guzel bir restoran-kafe bulunmaktadir. Asansorun bulundugu sokaga Dario Moreno sokagi denir. Unlu sarkici ve besteci, meshur oldugu ilk yillarda, burada annesine bir ev almis ve kendi de bu evde kalmistir.
