Still More Nostalgic Photos

 A few days back I posted on sources of old and nostalgic photos of Egypt and the Middle East. Now I've discovered an Arabic-language Facebook community called Antika, whose Arabic description is simply "Everything that is old and antique," and where people are posting not only nostalgic photos but old advertisements, celebrity photos, and what not. A quick sample suggests lots of Syrian/Levantine material though a mix of other sources too. (Sorry: link was absent; fixed now.)
