Visual History of Martyr’s Square in Beirut

Beirut, 1994

Yeah, this blog post over at Beirut the Fantastic is, well, fantastic. In addition to the photo above, there are photos of the famous center of town from 1891, 1910, 1930, 1972, 1984 and 2005. The photo above is from 1994 – during the middle of Rafik Hariri’s effort to reconstruct the center of Beirut. On a similar note, how much do I want to go to Beirut circa 1930? Really cool stuff.
