  • Scottish Art
Frederick Bremner wrote his own account of the Quetta Bazaar. It was 'inhabited by shopmen of various races and occupation. The most interesting are the Pathan dealers, whose goods are collected from all parts of the East...The tablet written in English at the back of the bazaar stall, and the paraffin lamp which hangs above he Pathan fruit-dealer's head, serve as tokens of the fact that the British are in possession, and he evidently wishes his customers to know that he is as enterprising as he is industrious'.
