Mogadishu: Images from the Past

Mogadiscio – Campo Militare

Posted in 1900 - 1918, 1930s, Govt buildings by rickjdavies on 20 July, 2008

Campo Militare 2

Postcard sent 1935

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

    This is a military camp close to “Hamar Jajab” and the military Airport and very far from Campo Amhara which is close to Lido

    I agree with sabriye it is in hamar jab jab area, it was the quarter for the non commissioned officers, my school for primary was just next to that before it was swallowed by the new modern sea port. it is near rhe sportivo veccia ( corrupted italian, meaning the old stadium). it is also near to the petroleum storage facility.
