Location within Mogadishu unknown. I thought it might have been “Campo Amhara” which was in Cabdul Casiis district.

But friends have commented below that it was in “Xamar Jab Jab”, near the port area.

Here is another photo of the same location, with the same title.

And here is another, possibly in the same location, with the words “Campo ascari…” on the back and dated 15/8/1915
