Retro Wednesday

1950s Iraq;
"...alive with the bustle of a young people who are taking back from the West the means to a brighter future."

A few decades of proper, if a bit rough colonial rule ... set things up and running ... give them the keys with the last British bases closed in 1955 ... and then ... in 1958 the Arab Socialist Ba'ath Party took power ... and, well, you read the news.

I won't get too cocky though ... here was 1961's Detroit.
