Riga Central Market

On December 28, 1922 Riga council decided to build the central nutritive market. For this purpose Riga bought shed for dirigibles left by German army in Kurzeme. At first it was planned to leave the intact, but shed didn't match the sanitary norms of that time, therefore sheds were used only partially. 5 pavilions were planned. The construction works begun in June 1924. Before that two so called red Speakers were demolished. The construction works ended in autumn 1930, and on November 2 it was given for exploitation.
