Open Culture posted an article today in regards to a new collection of 3500+ photographs of the Ottoman Empire available to view and download at the Getty Research Institute. Many are from the latter half of the 1800s and feature buildings and architecture.

If any of you have the time to do a more thorough search of the photo gallery, feel free and post what you discover below. Seems the oldest photos are from around 1853. Here are some interesting ones to start us off:
