Formerly home to a substantial Jewish community, Hasköy, a couple of kilometres up the Golden Horn from Karaköy, was also the location of an Ottoman naval shipyard and royal park. Today it’s noted for the excellent Rahmi M. Koç Industrial Museum, an old factory restored by Rahmi M. Koç, one of Turkey’s most famous – and wealthiest – industrialists, to house his private collection of models, machines, vehicles and toys. Upstairs, the starboard main engine of the Kalender steam ferry, made in Newcastle-upon-Tyne in 1911, is the main exhibit. Downstairs holds a number of old bikes, from penny-farthings to an early Royal Enfield motorbike,
and much else besides.
