Street scene


Photographer: Eric Newby

Country: Afghanistan

Date: 1956

The air was full of cries, outlandish smells of smoke and animals, dust and excitement. A bus gaily painted like a fantastic dragonfly and laden to suffocation point with passengers, failed to make the sharp turn and became jammed at the entrance to the bridge just at the moment when a flock of sheep, several hundreds strong, coming from the mountains also debouched on it … the noise was deafening' - A Short Walk in the Hindu Kush.
