I was looking through some old Beirut pictures on SkyscraperCity and found a cool shot of Martyrs’ Square [DownTown Beirut].
The old picture really captures the essence of pre-civil war Downtown Beirut, which was very vibrant, full of life, and different from the current D.T.
Here’s the old pic of Martyr’s square.
And here’s the picture I recently took from that same angle.
What a difference.
