Mogadishu: Images from the Past

Taken in the 1950’s, possibly. Note sheltered “harbour” on the left. This was cut out of the rocks. In the 1980s there were still the remnants of a circular staircase cut into the stone that went down to the sea level on inside of the harbour. I am not sure if this was built before after the Italian occupation of Mogadishu.
