A Postcard From 1980 Shows An Incredible Aerial View Of Deira


It’s sometimes worth looking back, to see how far we’ve truly come.

A postcard written in the 1980s is giving us major nostalgia vibes. The image shows Deira and a bird’s eye view of this fair city way back before the iconic Dubai skyline was just a dream.

Spot the difference? The pic shows a view of Baniyas Square above Rigga Cemetery and was sent to Germany in 1980 -over 30 years ago!
