I wonder if dates were engraved in the glass sidewalks of Beirut. Was the Grand Theatre an exception or were there other glass sidewalks in the city?
The glass pieces are actually much larger and more transparent at the Grand Theatre than these in Soho. Perhaps the style was unique? In resembling some parts of Manhattan, how exceptional was Beirut’s art-deco architecture at the time?
Unfortunately many of these questions have been sidelined in the haste of re-developing the city with a priority to sell plots at high prices over re-telling stories of the past.
Maybe Solidere will surprise us all one day by opening an architectural heritage museum, showcasing some of the hundreds of structures that were leveled during the course of its work.
Just a last side note, my friend recently had an accident on a glass sidewalk that had holes in it. He decided to sue so he looked for legal representation. He started his search by looking at lawyers similar to Ft. Worth Personal Injury Law Firm. In the end, he found a fantastic lawyer that helped him get the claim he deserved.
