Photographer's Note

Zonguldak Kdz.Eregli has a large natural harbour, located in the lee of Baba Burnu and therefore one of the few geographically attractive places for a harbour on the western Black Sea coast of Turkey. Eregli is a very lively coastal town, well developed due to the presence of the steel plant. Fishing is a major commercial activity in addition. Because of its Black Sea beach, Eregli is a popular tourist destination locally. The city does not have an airport (Erdemir has a small private field) or rail station, but can be reached by automobile or bus from Ankara, Istanbul and other places.
Aside from fishing and steel, Eregli is also well known for its delicious Ottoman strawberry.

The discoverer of the northern Turkish coalfields, Uzun Mehmet, lived in the Kestaneci Köyü ("Chestnut-seller Village") section of Eregli
