View looking down from the Kadifekale (= "the velvet castle"; actually the citadel of Smyrna) to north northwest at modern Izmir. Just above, and to the left of, the skyscraper (what else than the Hilton Hotel!), an outline of the bay of Izmir is visible. Izmir is the third largest city of Turkey with about 2,700,000 people.
