Back in 1963, there was a tramway that passed right in front of the American University of Beirut. I found some old footage a while ago that you can see [here]. I always thought Bliss Street should be a car-free street and I hope this happens one day.

PS: It doesn’t look like they are taking good care of the tree as it has considerably shrunk.
