Mystery Photo for Saturday

Recommended Posts

Where was this gift shop?

Given the inlaid wooden boxes and the knives, if I had to hazard a guess I would say - - - Lebanon Pavilion.

Any other opinions or clues?


A higher resolution version (if you want to look over the landfill) is here:


This slide is date stamped Jun 64.

It's taken a couple of years, but this evening I scanned a couple of unlabeled slides which together solved this mystery.

It's the Lebanon Pavilion.

A full view of the window is what nailed it.



It was either breezy in there or else a couple of the apparent women were actually aliens with kangaroo tails!

Other than the gift shop, the only interior photo of the Lebanon Pavilion we've seen on PTU up until this point was a closeup of a lion head supplied by Mike Kraus.

Tonight that changed- we now have a photo of the exhibit area.

The photos on the wall on the right say something about a "Baalbeck Festival", which I looked up on the web and found out that it's a famous arts festival in the Bekaa Valley in Lebanon.


Above the mosaic on the left is a caption that says "Europe a Phoenician Girl gave the Continent its Name".
