Picture of the old city of Mosul
I found this picture in the Encyclopedia of the Orient.
It show a side of the city facing the Tigris river. I like this picture because the house in the lower right of the image, the one with two floors, looks like the house where I was born. May be it is the very same house.
At the seasons of flood, the lower floor get filled of water. But at summer, it feels nice and cool.
