David Garnett  Photos from Peace Corps  (T-15)

Page 1

Most of these photos are from the area around Bartın, the town in Zonguldak Vilayet, where I taught English and French, 1967-69.


Kocagız. Many student went from this village to Bartın to study.  They "boarded" in Bartın during the week and walked home on weekends. There were no proper boarding facilities then and the students lived willy-nilly in hovels and old ahşap houses.  Some were so poor they might only be able to buy or barter for sawdust to burn in their stoves.


Mezarlık türbesi about a mile outside Bartın.  This was my favorite spot, just southeast of Bartın, where the foothills around the town begin.  It was a beautiful spot for photos then as was still interesting when I returned in 1980.

Venetian wall near Amasra


Amasra, where everyone from Bartın and surrounding areas went for the summer. In my opinion, it was beautiful and unpolluted.  Amasra has been ruled by Greeks, Venetians, and Ottomans.
