City on a grain of salt. Tuzla means a place of salt and it lays on top of the salt lake. It is suspected it has been there for around 7000 years as one of the oldest places in Europe.

House that is no more...

Some of you asked if I have a photo of the house that has been knocked down I mentioned in yesterday's post.
Makes me sad just looking at these photos. The old house really had a great character.
In honour of the house I’m putting all four photos I took this summer.

Stay warm and have a great weekend.

It is a lovely building, pity they couldn't find something to do with it besides tear it down.

It looks much warmer when you took these photos than the ones from the past few days.
Have a great weekend!

It is a lovely home with a lot of character. Too bad it had to go in the name of progress.

It's a shame such a lovely house was destroyed in the name of progress. It is also a shame that it costs more to renovate many times than it does to tear down and build new.

These summer photos give me some warmth! I once lived in a cute old house, but the inside had mice and mold and a ton of other problems that would have cost a fortune to fix. It is sad.

Very nice house. Reminds me my Grandma's house. Some small family house. Shame...

Jazzy, about your comment on Istanbul Daily Photo, since Tuzla is not so far to Istanbul, don't wait to long:)....

There are many buildings like this in El Centro in Mazatlan but people are moving in, gutting the insides and restoring them. It's a slow process but very interesting. Good photos to tell the story.

Such a pity they couldn't preserve and renovate it.
