1950s photographs from Saida Lebanon
These old 1958-1970’s black and white photographs are from archives of a Lebanese photo-studio “Scheherazade”, located in Saida, Lebanon. The poses and the objects people choose to pose next to look quite funny, and sometimes even weird. But that’s probably the same thing that’s going to be said about our photos in 50 years from now. Sidon or Saida is the third-largest city in Lebanon. It is located in the South Governorate of Lebanon, on the Mediterranean coast, south of the capital Beirut. In Genesis, Sidon is the son of Canaan the grandson of Noah. Its name coincides with the modern Arabic word for fishery.
