James Robertson 
The camp of the 3rd Grenadier Guards 
Private collection 
LL/36104 (Accessed: 1 April 1854 - the website "Florence Nightingale Historical Bulletin" is run by author Hugh Small. The photograph is credited to the collection of Keith Smith.)
"...shows the camp of the 3rd Grenadier Guards with the barracks (later the Barrack Hospital and now the Selimiye Barracks) in the background. Lines to the Selimiye mosque and to the General Hospital (the building on the left) locate the site ... This would now be on the railway tracks and has presumably been excavated. Even if it were possible now to stand in the same spot, the new Marmara University building would probably obscure the view of the barracks."
