Highlights from SAHARA: Commerce, Part I

by Jacqueline Spafford and Jeffrey Klee, SAHARA Co-Editors | Nov 15, 2016
The offerings in SAHARA of images related to commerce are so vast that we decided to break it into parts. This month we take a first look at retail. These images include eye-catching signs, inviting entrances, a very wide span of display choices, and architecture from street stalls to grand shopping palaces. Again, we thank our members for their keen eyes, skill, and generosity in sharing these images.
