    Ahmed is right, but on the oposite side is the building which use to house a pharmacy and was destroyed by fire. In its place the NATCO run by northrener Inj. Jirdeh built a 4 or 5 storey building, and toward to the left of the picture we can see the gate of the office of the district of Mogadishu office.
