We continue to be amazed by images of Dubai’s ever expanding skyline… The space that developed from sprawling desert to booming city dominated by skyscrapers in just two decades.
And a closer look at Dubai streets show similar jaw-dropping progress.
These images were shared on Twitter, snapped nearly two decades ago by a local photographer’s father. They show a rare snapshot of a residential neighbourhood in Dubai pre modernization.
Some old photos my father took around Dubai. Not sure of the exact date. Sometime around the late 90’s and early 2000’s pic.twitter.com/f84rjcfITp
