Publisher Note

” Back in the days, neighborhoods in Beirut were full of small shops supplying the diverse needs of its residents ; they formed an integral part of the city and its dynamics.


That was before the civil war, fifteen years, followed by a huge wave of construction imposing major changes on the city; the rise of big malls and franchise brands saw these shops struggle to keep up with needs of the modern consumer, eventually they ended up on the margin of the new city.”
