This historic panoramic photo of Zeytoun was taken by an Armenian photographer from Aintep, named Kéghouni , c. 1909. Indeed it has been published in many Armenian-authored historical books about Zeytoun, such as “Zeytouni Batmakirque”, 1960, published by the Compatriotic Union of Zeytoun in Buénos Aires, Argentina.
