Object:"The Sofia market"
Description:Panorama photograph of a square enclosed by a mosque and another large building. Many people in urban and in rural clothes are standing, walking, or sitting in the square between (makeshift) stalls selling various goods. Recto: name of the photographer and "Neubert" - probably the publisher.
Comment:One of the biggest street markets in Sofia, located in the square between the Banya Bashi Mosque (completed in 1576 and currently the only functioning mosque in Sofia), the Sofia Public Mineral Baths (built in the early 20th century near the former Turkish bath), and the Market Hall (Halite), from where the photograph was probably taken.
