1963 Lebanon

111. 1963 Levant Tour – Lebanon Baalbek

Hello – Welcome to WDEOD, a site full of Doris’ photographs!

Its purpose is to share the shots she took in her 50+ years of travel. I’m trying to do a post a film – so one tour may have many posts.
To see what I’ve put up so far, use the menu (three lines up there ↑ if you are on a phone or tablet) to go to a place or a year.

This is one of a number of films Doris took on her 1963 trip to the Levant. For more slides from this trip go to here.

It focuses mainly on the beautiful Baalbek plateau.

However first…
