Dubai photos from 1975-1980

By now everyone knows about the bling-encrusted Dubai with its in-your-face exhibition of wealth. Here is a set of historic black-and-white photos of Dubai from thirty years ago. The link is via a contributor at UAE Community Blog. Take a few minutes to peruse. (They show better when [F-11] hides the toolbars.)
I have sent a message asking permission to print one of these lovely pictures and am waiting for a reply from The Netherlands.

I didn't get permission from the photographer but I did make her mailing list. It is now a year later and she sent me an email announcing a show in Dubai.
Here is the link to my more recent blogpost.
