Interesting old pictures form Jordan

This picture was taken on April 30th, 1953. It's a rehearsal for the coronation ceremony of late King Hussein who was 18 years old by then. (just in case you were wondering why did we use to get a vacation on May 1st?)

King Faisal's Street in Amman in 1950

Skyline View of Amman in 1964....

This is a picture of Jordanian soldiers searching for PLO weapons in 1971

This picture below follows the six-day war in 1967 were people went out in demonstrations.

This picture above is of Amman during the sad incidents of Black Spetmeber where all shops were closed after applying the martial law.
