a lot of it looked to be fine quality, & there were
this may have been a picture at an exhibition
about the architect Sinan that was on while we were
in Istanbul. He designed the relatively small Rustem Pasha mosque,
my favourite of those I saw.
( Suleymaniye mosque was still closed for renovations)
