The photo is of Armenian girls’ Yetimhane ( orphanage ) of Adana’s Armenian quarter circa 1909-1910. It was funded mostly by Boghos Noubar Pasha of AGBU ( Haykakan Parekordzagan Entehanour Miyoutyoun ) to shelter, nourish and educate the orphaned Armenian children after the Adana tragic massacres of Armenians of April 1909 by the local Turks. This photo is well circulated in Turkish websites and confirms the same.
