A FRENCHMAN TRAVELS TO ISTANBUL
Our story begins in 1895. Jean Cesar Reboul, a young French pharmacist, was traveling through Istanbul on his way to Trabzon, a city in the northeastern part of Turkey, to visit his father, who was working as an engineer to build the highway from Hopa to Trabzon. Istanbul, with its unique blend of old-world mystique and modern commerce, immediately captured his imagination. The entrepreneur in him was awakened, and he found the perfect spot, on Rue de Pera in Beyoglu, to open one of Turkey’s first pharmacies, the Grande Pharmacie Parisienne, or the Great Paris Pharmacy.
