The Powder Tower, part of the original wall built in the Middle Ages, is on the right.
There was a great shop across the street - Tshirts, mittens, stained glass.
The tall building is the Hotel Latvia where we stayed on our trip in 1987.

You can see the pulley.
This is where our walking tour of Riga was interrupted by a group of venders
who insisted we buy their wares. We did a little bargaining and a lot of buying.
I bought an amber fish pin, several amber bracelets which I plan to cannibalize

and ink drawing of Riga.
This structure is part of an ancient (13th century?) building. The man seated
on the right is playing a saw.
