Salaga Market. A market scene on the great trade routes between Coomassie, the capital of Ashanti and Timbuctoo.
Guggisbergs text:
'...the old market with its wealth of colouring, its movement, its sunshine and shade...' (Guggisberg, Gold Coast News, no.25).
Note:
Contrary to the caption on the back of the card, it is likely that we have to identify this card as depicting the Salaga Market in Accra, named after the northern town of Salaga [MRD].
