Photographer's Note

We can see the 5th Century A.D. walls at the end of this alley. These small houses were built in 1922 to house some of the million or so Christians who were expelled from Turkey after the Treaty of Lausanne. Ethnic cleansing in an earlier and treaty ratified form. Nowadays they are home to newer immigrants. I heard unknown languages in passing - certainly not Greek.
