Shop Selling Paper 3340

Since the shops were open only on market days, they were simple thatched-roofed structures with mats hung on both sides in place of walls and wooden posts used as pillars. The market was open on the fourth, fourteenth and twenty-fourth of each month and numerous goods were displayed on these days. The shop displayed here is selling paper. On the other days of the month, it was a dismal atmosphere as none of the stores were open and the marketplace was deserted.
