Hanoi Old Quarter shop specialized in musical instruments. At the beginning of the 20th century the entire city consisted of only about 36 streets, most of which are now the old quarter. Each street had merchants and artisans specialized in a particular trade such as silk, jewellery, coffee and herbalists. The street names reflect these specializations, although few of them remain exclusively in their original commerce.
