1963 Lebanon Syria

113. Levant 1963 – Lebanon Beirut to Syria Damascus

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.

For more slides from this trip go to here.

Beirut. For some reason I thought Old England was a tobacco, but a search gives different products, shops etc. Probably it foresaw the 1985 Waterboys song.
