Gajil Vendors market

 

Iran, East Azerbaijan province, Tabriz-Spring 2007: "Gajil vendors market" which was located in the city of Tabriz and were a place for poor people who spend their lives with only 7$ a day or even less by vending. Most of these people were lived in the poor part of the city with crowded families. The things that they had sold, were mostly old objects which were not useful anymore in the homes and stores. Everything can be found there, from rusted Nut and screw, old tire of cars, bicycle, electronic necessities, old shoes and dress to hen and rooster and other kinds of birds. Most of the villagers around Tabriz came to this place too. Gajil means "crowded place" which is also the name of old part of Tabriz city. Gajil historical cemetery which was famous as "Orafa cemetery" which was destroyed in the Pahlavi period. Golestan garden - the first park in the city of Tabriz - was built in its place. Gajil's historical entrance door with high walls and towers which was one of the nine entrance doors of Tabriz was destroyed in 1959 when Palestine Avenue was constructed by the city mayor.
