Algeria Algerian Djidjelli Office Telecommunication Telegraph


EDITORS COMMENTS
This evocative photograph captures the Post Office building at Djidjelli, also known as Jijel, in North Africa, circa 1930. The image transports us back in time to the 1930s, an era of modernization and architectural innovation in Algeria. The Post Office, with its imposing presence, stands proudly on the bustling street, its whitewashed walls adorned with intricate Arabic calligraphy. The building's design is a harmonious blend of traditional Algerian architecture and contemporary European influences, with its arched windows, red-tiled roof, and ornate columns. The surrounding cityscape is a vibrant tableau of activity. The pavement is filled with people, some dressed in traditional Algerian attire, while others wear Western-style clothing. Cars and horse-drawn carts navigate the narrow streets, and trees line the roads, providing shade and a sense of tranquility. In the foreground, a telegraph pole stands tall, a reminder of the important role telecommunications played in connecting this part of the world to the rest of the globe. The Post Office at Djidjelli was more than just a place to send and receive mail. It was a symbol of connection, a link to the wider world, and a testament to the rich cultural heritage of Algeria. This photograph offers a glimpse into a bygone era, a time when the old world met the new, and the magic of communication transcended borders.
