The final part of this amazing collection of images from Syria over the past 150 years from Camille Alexandre Otrakji.
This week: the Victoria Bridge over the Barada River in Damascus in the 1870s. This bridge no longer exists, and this section of river is now underneath the Shukri Al-Kuwatli Highway. That’s followed by a section of the Damascus Old City wall in 1872. Then a bus in Damascus from 1920, a Jewish wedding in Aleppo in 1914, and finally, a street scene in Aleppo in 1900.
This is part of Alex’s family collection of historic photographs from the Middle East.
