Footage from Bahrain’s celebrations of Aid al-Adha in 1958. At 00.25, you see the current King of Bahrain, Sh. Hamad b. Isa Aal Khalifah, then aged 8. At 00.10, his grand-father, then ruler, Sh. Salman b. Hamad Aal Khalifah, who passed away in 1961.

  2. Thank you for giving me the pleasure of viewing this, a small segment of the past when we were much less a homogenized world.
