Eski Kaplıca in the 20th century

Two views of the oldest hammam still in use in Bursa, the original capital of the Ottoman Empire. The upper image, though used on an early 20th century postcard, probably  dates from the end of the 19th. The lower image shows the baths towards the end of the 20th century.

The postcard is from the collection of the Victorian Turkish Baths Project
