traffic in Al Rasheed St, Baghdad, Iraq, 1959

Even by Western standards, this looks civilised; a Humber Super Snipe in the middle, a man wearing a suit, red English double-deck buses in the background.

Since 2003 the Baghdad scene has been dominated by Muslim sectarian violence, terrorist insurgency and lots of destruction.  Someone has put over 4,000 pictures of Old Iraq on Twitter to show what it was like in the good old days -- URL
