Photo du port de Beyrouth prise à 3,000 mètres d’altitude par François Pierre-Alype en 1929.
Bibliothèque nationale de France
I stumbled upon today an aerial shot of Beirut’s port taken in 1929 by François Pierre-Alype, found on the National Library of France website. I dug out the website, searched for all the Beirut-related pictures on it and there are 94 of them dating from the 1800s and 1930s.
The quality of these old pictures is quite amazing. Check them out!
