Natives in market place, Sarajevo, Bosnia, Austria-Hungary

Natives in market place, Sarajevo, Bosnia, Austria-Hungary

J142558 U.S. Copyright Office. No. 15611.

The evening scene at the biggest mosque in Sarajevo. Those who can't get inside can be seen kneeling on the wide portico while a beggan man and woman hover about the entrance. Note the bare feet of the worshippers and the rack of shoes and sandals in the entrance. A Mohammadan always takes off his shoes while at prayer. For the first time in the history of this Bosnian town a religious custom was broken shortly after the American Red Cross arrived. The priests issued a proclamation permitting children and mothers to break a religious fast and partake of food distributed by the Red Cross

Plenty of free water and air. But that is about all there is left in Sarajvo, the Bosnia town in which the Great War started. This is a scene in the poorest quarter, a Mohammedan mother and her little daughter filling their Turkish jugs with drinking water to sell on the streets, the American Red Cross directed the feeding of 5,000 under nourished children daily in Sarajevo. Types of those that received A.R.C. aid are shown in the background

Bread Boys of Sarajevo. Typical illustration of the way boys of Bosnia carry burdens on their head. This is a baker's boy who peddles bread in the streets. He balances a long plank loaded with thirty pounds of bread on his head and walks without a misstep through crowded traffic. All this bread is made from white flour sent from America to relieve the food shortage. These boys and thousands of others like them are being aided by the Junior Red Cross of America, which looked after the distribution of cocoa and milk to the under nourished children of Bosnia

Getting it While It's Hot. A scene in one of the Bosnian school yards during the noonday meal which is composed of American soup and chocolate. These are some of the children that the boys and girls of America are helping back to health through the Junior Red Cross organization.

Kept Open by American Generosity. The largest hospital in Sarajevo was about to close for lack of medical supplies and equipment when the American Red Cross unit arrived in the city where the excuse for the world was given by the assassination of the Austrian Archduke. The Americans came to feed the under nourished mothers and children. But they also assumed the burden of keeping the hospitals open. The Red Cross sent supplies immediately from its warehouses in France and this hospital with many others admitted more patients instead of turning out those that were already in it

Cheerful Balkan Burden-Bearer. The women of the Balkans, unlike their more progressive sisters in America, are satisfied to be the burden bearers of the city and town and countryside, preferring to let their men follow their immemorial vocation of going to battle and guarding home and country. The aged but sturdy housewife in the picture was snapped at the American Red Cross dispensary in Sarajevo, Bosnia, where she had come to apply for milk for her little grandchild

The Luncheon Recess in Sarajevo. A group of Bosnian war orphans being fed in the yeard of their school by the American Red Cross during the noon recess. The Red Cross served 5,000 of these youngsters daily in Sarajevo. Establishing the stations in the schools doubled the attendance, as the children were so hungry that they didn't mind taking a little education along with the food

The Draying Business in Bosnia. The pack mules have plenty of competition among the Turkish women when it comes to carrying heavy loads. The Mohammedan woman on the left is carrying more than the burro. Upon this group the American Red Cross was dependent for much of its firewood to keep its soup kettles boiling in Sarajevo, where it fed 5,000 undernourished mothers and children a day. This particular group gives a typical idea of the customs that prevail among Turkish women and men. The women always carry the heaviest burdens while the male member of the family staggers along under a small package weighing a few ounces

Belles of Sarajevo. Coin ornaments twisted in their hair, wide band bracelets, immense earrings, embroidered jackets and full skirts are the mark of a belle in Sarajevo, the Bosnian town where the Austrian Archduke was murdered in 1914. This shows two of them on the street surrounded by a group of admiring swain, also in native costume. Amidst such scenes as this Americans are working to relieve the distress caused at the "cradle of the war". Five thousands undernourished children were fed daily by the American Red Cross in Sarajevo

The Inertia of the East. Is aptly illustrated in this Turkish quarter of Sarajevo, where Archduke Ferdinand was assassinated. The buildings, streets and methods of business have not changed in centuries, while in the European quarter there are fine buildings and finer shops. It was in this Oriental quarter that the American Red Cross found most of their patrons at its free feeding stations for children
