More and more old precious pictures from Jordan ....

Aqaba's Fort from outside, Photos taken by T. E. Lawrence at the time of the capture of Aqaba
The capture of Aqaba.... one century ago!
Now this is a very rare picture!

Prince Abdullah (who later became King Abdullah the First) with Winston Churchill, Secretary of State for the British colonies, at the Jerusalem Conference, March 1921; the photo shows Mrs Churchill, Sir Herbert Samuel, the High Commissioner of Palestine, Mrs. Samuel, General Ghaleb Pasha Sha'alan, Colonel Fu'ad Sleem, and Colonel Aref Al-Hassan.

You could identify King Abdullah with his Hattah and Churchill with his eyes!
The only train in Jordan!


Late King Hussien's own signature on this card, you can buy it on ebay for only four thusand dollars.
The Roman Theatre one century ago, it's difficult to tell which one is this, the one in amman or the one in Jerash, any idea?? Time Magazine- 1956. I just bought this magazine for ten dollars!

My guess would be that picture is of downtown Amman's theater. This is based mostly on the perspective it's taken from-- Jerash has a hill across the street on the "modern portion" of town, but I don't think it's as close or as tall as Jabal al-qala' in Amman
