Taurus Mountains

Scope and Content

Images taken by the survey team near and whilst passing through the Taurus mountains (Toros Dağları), Turkey. The survey team passed through the mountains in the middle of June 1907, and its is likely that the majority of these images were taken leading up to and passing through the Cilician Gates, (Gülek Boğazı, Turkey) down to Adana, Turkey.


This series contains images formerly in the Misc. Near Eastern Negative collection (MISC) which were transferred in November 2015.
