Samsun street scene

Samsun street scene

I took the picture of this school to show the portrait (Atatürk, I think), hanging outside. You see this a lot in Turkey. Sometimes also large banners indicate that x pupils made it to University last year (with sometimes a list of their names).

other sizes: small medium large original

During the national festival periods or anniversaries like establishment of Turkish Republic , we hang flags of Turkey and pictures of our founder Mustafa Kemal Ataturk on official buildings like schools, ministries, universities etc. I think the picture was taken on such a day.
