Amman – A History with Pictures

I have recently read a book by Arslan Ramadan Bakig titled “Amman – A History with Pictures.” This is an excellent book published in 2002. It is an interesting book with a lot of pictures documenting Amman’s history in the twentieth century.

I would like to share with you some of the pictures I like from this book.

    Looks like it has many rare photos. It would be interesting to see photos showing the same places now and then.
