I did not think it would be this hard.
I have scoured the Internet for a picture, just one picture, of the old market in Bloemfontein. Either archival or Now. I have been told by a couple of people that Now is not time when you want to be walking near the old market with a camera.
So, if there are any Bloemfonteiners reading this and they have a picture, or really feel like being helpful, pleeeeeeeeeeease send me a picture of the old market? It will be posted on this blog with a short story about the market, circa back-in-the-day, written by my mom.
I have emailed tourism in Bloemies, no reply (no tourists?); emailed bloggers and photographers (dankie, Joe en Gerrit for the leads), searched Flickr. Nothing.
