Tripoli from 17th to 20th Century A Visual History
Bob Bell, a son of Tripoli, will be raiding his unique collection of historical images of his native city to give members and their friends a fascinating visual history of Lebanon’s great northern city. The presentation will be an interactive talk using images of paintings, photos and prints of Tripoli from 17th century to the last quarter of 20th century. Bob will engage the audience in a discussion about places, people and events that took place in Tripoli throughout the period. The presentation is scheduled to last for an hour but previous experience tells us that the audiences are completed fascinated by the journey Bob takes them on and the Q&A that follows is often as intriguing as the images themselves and if necessary there are a few more images that can be shown for an encore! Not to be missed but please book early, the Royal Thames Yacht Club has a limited number of seats. “Some of the photos I will show have never been published before. They are truly vintage from the 1950's and 1960's.” Bob Bell. Tickets: Click here
