EDITORS COMMENTS
Step back in time to the vibrant and exotic racing grounds of Bou Saada, Algeria, in the 1910s, as captured in this stunning photograph from the Mary Evans Picture Library. The image transports us to a world of tradition and adventure, where camels were the primary mode of transportation in the arid desert landscape. In the foreground, we see a line of elegantly adorned camel palanquins, each one carefully balanced atop the hump of a patient camel. The palanquins, or paniers, were used to carry passengers in comfort and style, shielding them from the harsh desert sun and sand. The intricate patterns and rich colors of the fabric, as well as the ornate carvings on the wooden frames, showcase the craftsmanship and artistry of the local people. The racing grounds, teeming with activity, are a hive of excitement and energy. Spectators, dressed in their finest attire, gather around to place their bets and cheer on their favorite camels. The air is filled with the sounds of laughter, chatter, and the occasional roar of a victorious camel crossing the finish line. The scene is a testament to the resilience and resourcefulness of the people of Algeria, who adapted to the harsh desert conditions and found innovative ways to travel and thrive. This photograph offers a glimpse into a bygone era, a time when the racing grounds of Bou Saada were the heart of the community, bringing people together in celebration and camaraderie.
