Kuwait in the 2000s

The first two photos below apparently show what it looked like across from Souq Sharq in 2004-2005. The second photo comes from this account and the rest come from this account. The small brick home was apparently just south of Marina Mall, but I believe that it no longer stands. The Shamlan bin Ali bin Saif AlRoumi Mosque looks quite different now. The abandoned police station has since been turned into the Police Museum.

The photos of the blue door come from the flickr account above and are of the Bin Khamis Mosque, on google maps other older photographs of the mosque were posted. Behind the mosque today is the Central Bank, completed in 2013.

These images come from the flickr of Simon W and date to 2005. The first two are of Bait Al Ghanem, today it has a fence around it.

These photos come from this flickr account and date to 2004-2005.

These images come from this flickr, of an American soldier who was in Kuwait in 2002.

These photos were taken between 2003-2005 by Bob McCaffrey. It is interesting to note how much the “Thanks Allies” painting has faded.

Some lovely photos from Ali Bukhamseen

From the flickr of Mohammad Abdullah

These photos come from Debi K, Anna, Samira Akil Zaman, Hunny Alrohaif.
