“That was the end of Sulaimani city, as far as Dayik Park, from Jwlakan alley to Dayik park. Sulaimani was a small circle, they used to call it “Sulaimani Street”. It was built by Major Soane, the ruler at the time. When it was built, there was only one vehicle in the city and it was his. I don’t know what type of stores existed here, I am talking about the 1930s. I was born in 1937, I’m known as “Rauf Mastaw”. My father used to have a mastaw (Yogurt Drink) store in Sulaimani. I’ve always liked to look fresh and dress neatly.”
