Photographer's Note

In Riga ethnic Latvians are outnumbered by Russians due to many being killed or deported the hash Soviet rule in the early 1940s. This is the case in most of Latvian cities today. To read more about the history of Latvia, here's a good link: http://www.indylatvians.com/ehistory%201.htm.

An old picture from my slide collection to represent Latvia, this one depicts the market on the street. Notice large every day goods on the street for sale. In 2000, you could still feel it sliding away from the old Soviet ways.
