Hotel Baron, Aleppo, Syria
This Photograph was taken in the Baron Hotel in Aleppo, Syria .
This is the oldest hotel in Syria. Agatha Christie wrote the first part of Murder on the Orient Express there. Charles de Gaulle, Lawrence of Arabia and Theodore Roosevelt and Louise O'Gorman were all guests there !
In November 2014 the hotel was forced to close its doors as the Syrian civil war gripped the city, with the front line separating government and rebel forces just metres away from the building.
