Kabul Marketplace No. 5 | Early 1970’s
A stall next to the Kabul river shows the various sides of the country with the woman in the burqa, the donkey carrying its load, and the modern buildings. The pace of life was definitely slow but most seemed comfortable and there were few beggars (compared with India and Pakistan where they were everywhere in great numbers).
