Bringing the past to life with colour

Christmas in Lebanon

Lebanon gained independence from France in 1943, during the second World War, but the Allies kept the region under control until the end of the war. The French withdrew the last of their troops in 1946, when this photo was taken. These children, however, are American, possibly the children of diplomats.
