Damascus street signs – history alive

August 4th, 2008 · 2 Comments · Uncategorized

Interesting series of posts from a visitor to Damascus, looking at the street signs.

They often come with a short history lesson in the form of a small plaque next to the road name. The plaque explains why that street has got that name.

The signs provide a vital history of Damascus’s streets – and its people.

The first one is here – it’s a ten part series.
