EDITORS COMMENTS
This vintage map of Beirut, Lebanon, dates back to the end of World War II in 1945. The map provides an intriguing glimpse into the city as it appeared during that historical period, with a specific focus on military locations that would have been of particular importance to a British serviceman stationed in the area. The map is rich in detail, highlighting various military installations, barracks, and camps scattered throughout the city. These included the British Military Headquarters located near the Martyrs' Square, the Royal Army Ordnance Corps Depot in Ras Beirut, and the Royal Navy Base at the Beirut Waterfront. On the reverse side of the map, a list of "Dos and Don'ts" is provided for the serviceman on his leave in the city. The "Dos" include recommendations to visit popular clubs and cinemas such as the American Club, the British Club, and the Riviera Cinema. The "Don'ts," on the other hand, caution against visiting certain areas of the city, particularly those with a high crime rate or known to be off-limits to Allied personnel. The map also includes various other points of interest, such as hotels, hostels, and the Beirut International Airport. The Lebanese capital was a bustling hub of activity during the post-war period, and this map offers a fascinating insight into the city's military and social landscape at that time. This map is a valuable historical document, providing a unique perspective on Beirut during the waning days of World War II and the early days of the peace that followed. It is a reminder of the rich history and cultural diversity of this fascinating city and the role it played in world events during that era.
