This is an amazing map of Beirut from 1911, showing various places as they looked like at the break of the 19th and 20th centuries and shortly after the World War I. For those interested, the map is available for download in high-res and you can even have a printed copy delivered to you.
Le spie uccidono a Beirut (Also known as Secret Agent Fireball), which means The spies Kill In Beirut, is a 1965 Italian spy movie that is inspired by the James Bond series and was filmed in Italy, Beirut, Germany and Paris in France. Richard Harrison stars in this movie as agent Bob Fleming 077. I found the whole thing on YouTube and went through it quickly to find the scenes filmed in Beirut.
I would have watched the whole movie but I only found the Italian version online. Le Spie Uccidono A Beirut is rated 5.5/10 on IMDb.
Pierre Gemayel was back then the captain of the Lebanese football team and the president of the Lebanese Football federation. Kheireddine Al-Ahdab was the first Sunnite Prime Minister in Lebanon.

Modern police was first established in 1861 in Lebanon and the ISF is celebrating its 153st anniversary this year. I gathered few pictures that were shared on the ISF twitter and FB accounts as well as a video they released.
PS: The History of the ISF is a dead link on the ISF website for some reason.
