Photographer's Note

A village in Simav district of Kόtahya province, back in 1987. When I recently found this old slide and scanned it, this picture of simple houses and muddy streets full of animals evoked images of times long ago.
Much changed in Turkey during the last twenty years. Scenes like this are more rare nowadays. But since rural parts of Kόtahya province are relatively poor and undeveloped maybe in this particular village not so much change took place. Most likely there are some cars now and satellite disks. Maybe the street is paved now.

The village is probably built on or near some classical site. I remember that the walls of some houses contained pieces of antique inscriptions.

note: Since this a scan from positive film, some postprocessing have been done
