Konya

Konya is somewhat a sister station of Ankara. Both were the terminal points of the CFOA and they were built during the same decade, using the same design. Konya station, built in 1896, is identical to Ankara 1892 building, except that, in Ankara, the building wings were slightly longer. But whereas Ankara original building was demolished, Konya old station was retained and converted into a restaurant.

Konya street side. This picture dates perhaps from the late 1920's or the 1930's. The motor car and the Turkish flag are rough give away. Some of the windows are blinded: war damage not repaired yet? Col G. Tunçbilek

Konya station

Same building, same angle 60 years after! Some architectural details have been removed, such as the wood carvings on the edge of the roof. Overall the building stayed in its original condition. October 2005. Photo G. Tunçbilek
