Damascus street signs - history alive

Interesting series of posts from a visitor to Damascus, looking at the street signs.

They often come with a short history lesson in the form of a small plaque next to the road name. The plaque explains why that street has got that name.

The signs provide a vital history of Damascus's streets - and its people.

The first one is here - it's a ten part series.

thanks for linking, but im not a visitor here ok:). ana badrus 3arabi hoon. but there is still way more to come...

Ahlan, ahlan! Where are you from originally, and how long are you here? Loving your posts - keep going!
