This photo was taken at the Kilyos beach in 1932. I was born on 23rd March 1914, so this means I am 18 in this photo.
This photo was taken on a Sunday in the years 1929-1930 on the road to Kilyos. At that time there were no roads to Kilyos, no buses, no cars. We could only go there on foot. We went to Sariyer by bus or by boat and then we walked to Kilyos. It was a 2-3 hour-walk. We could reach there through the mountains. One day my friends and I decided to go on an outing like this. A few friends and I set off. It was summer of course.
