I am posting in this post a batch of photos, which is considered as the oldest photos of Baghdad ever made. According to the website I nicked the photos from, it is between 1910 and 1939

Very nice pictures! but they almost made me cry not because of nostalgia but because looking deep into these pictures made me raise this question: "where are those people now?" and the answer was: "mostly underground".

Thank you for the beautiful pictures that bring tears to my eyes. When I was a child I used to think of Baghdad as a city of mosques and palaces, like in the Arabian Nights. Now I think of it as a place of danger and ugliness, of bombings and of unhappy people. I so wish it could be again what it was a hundred years ago.
