Thank you for conducting this report and posting these lovely pictures. I wish you had pictures of residents as well. This neighborhood used to be called also Al-Sebaq Al-Qadeem an old horse race stadium and also Tel Muhammad. It should have been renamed and called by an Assyrian name since it was 98% occupied by Assyrians. I was born in that City in 1961 and lived until 1981. I walked in every street, played at the Assyrian Athletic Club, and enjoyed the friendship of many loving friends which majority now they are disbursed all over the world (USA, Canada, Europe, and Australia).
Other famous residents:
Mar Meles Zaya – Our beloved Bishop of Assyrian Church of the East (Australia).
Aram Karam – Assyrian soccer player & Captain Iraqi team (California, USA).
Julie Yousif – Assyrian singer (Michigan, USA)
And many more…
Thank you for keeping the ties.
