Photographs from the earthquake
|Children and the Earthquake
The contractor's sign tells a story. The piece
of concrete sticking out of the ground in the centre of this picture used
to be one of the columns supporting the first floor of the block to the
left. Under the shock of the earthquake, the flimsy column fractured and
the building hopped up over and down to the left, leaving only the bent
reinforcing steels to show the now z shaped path of the column.
The contractor's sign says, "Aloglu Construction
- At suitable prices - Luxury Flats and Shops with Central Heating, Elevators,
Water Pumps and Parking."
