A friend of mine made me realize there are a lot of interesting things that can be found using the Google Books search feature. I did a search for Lebanon and I found a ton of mentioned of Lebanon in books and articles, too many to mention here but I have mentioned some interesting ones below as examples of what can be found. If only there was a way to copy all this stuff onto my iPad I would have a lifetime of reading material with me! Does anyone know where the pool pictured above is located?
1952 Jabby in Lebanon
1955 Beauty show chaperon
1958 Uprising in Lebanon imperils U.S Friend
1958 Tortured little land poses a big problem
1966 Little Lebanon brings Las Vegas and the Riviera into Old Araby
1977 Taekwondo a tool for peace or destruction?
I’m gonna take a wild guess and say Phoenicia
You’re right, looks like the old Phoenicia pool
This is the pool today
The old phoenicia pool had a window to the bar – where you could watch girls swimming while having a drink…anyone know if the new pool has this?
I saw that in the magazine and I was wondering where that was. figured it was at the casino
There’s Mosaic restaurant now next to the pool and there’s a gym too.
Thanks for those links. The article about 1958 uprising is very much interesting.
Photos about old Lebanon are always magic
Although it shows us that nothing had changed in politics, even though 50 years have passed!
Excellent links. Thanks for posting.
