Old Palmyra in 1929-1932. Part 1

As you know, the medieval Palmyra (Tadmor) existed in the walls of the ancient temple of Bel. The town remained until 1929, when due to the excavation, relocation of residents started into a new village. In these photos you can see Palmyra until 1929, before the resettlement of the temple and after 1932, when all the houses of local residents were removed.
