The suburb of Üsküdar has been considerably altered since Florence Nightingale’s day. A shipping terminal and large railway yard have been built on reclaimed land in the Bosphorus in front of the Selimiye Barracks. The map at the right shows the modern Üsküdar with a blue line superimposed showing where the waterfront was during the Crimean War. This line was traced from a map of Scutari printed in Florence Nightingale’s Notes on Matters Affecting the Health of the British Army. On Florence Nightingale’s map of Scutari you can see both the Barrack Hospital as well as the general Hospital (still a military hospital today) and other landmarks.
