Crossing the Galata Bridge and sights along the way

The Galata Bridge in Istanbul is symbolic of the link between the traditional old city of Istanbul and neighborhoods to the east that are largely non-Muslim.  The bridge spans the Golden Horn (the primary inlet of the Bosphorus) and has been rebuilt five times.  These are some of the sites I saw on either side of the bridge and on the bridge itself.
