Have you ever wondered what Lebanon looked like in the 60s? Other than watching documentaries in motion pictures and looking at our family’s photo album, we have rarely seen a video of old Lebanon, at least in color!


Lebanon in 1969: IN MOTION!

By gathering many shots and coloring them, British Pathé, a newsreel archive,  has created a 2-minute and 19-second video about Lebanon in 1969.
