The Girl From Fort De Kock

A young vendor at the market in Fort de Kock, Indonesia, poses by her peppers, February 1930.
Photograph by W. Robert Moore, National Geographic. Found here

I found the photo when I browsed through Nat Geo tumblr (the blogs is a real gem!). Fort de Kock, which is what we call as Bukittinggi today, was also known as Parijs van Sumatera during its heyday. Since the girl is wearing a headcovering, I think this makes a good opening for the Ramadan posts :).
