Maadi Road 9

Road 9 is Maadi's answer to Oxford Street...bustling, full of shops selling just about everything, its the commercial hub of the suburb called Maadi....

However, 50 years ago, the commercial area was restricted to just 2 blocks and the rest was a verdant roadway..just found a picture of that..unbelievable!!

Gamal, I had googled "Maadi" and came across an article on what Maadi used to look like in the 1950-60s...the article had this and some other pictures...
