How great to see a picture from Kabul in 1964, eight years before I saw the city for the first time. I don't think there was much change in those few years, but now a view from almost 50 years ago probably seems longer ago in Kabul than in most other places on earth, considering the horrible and turbulent times that have passed.
This was indeed an ordinary day. Life goes on, some people carrying heavy loads, someone is begging for alms, most people just on their way to somewhere, one man climbing the steep wall from the river. This quiet ordinariness is a joy to watch, even more so thanks to the fabulously well kept and well scanned photo.

Good quality for a photo 49 years old, which shows an interesting everyday life scene, before the events that we all know.
