Modern Times



Modern Times (19thCentury A.D. – 20thCentury A.D.): the main theme of this postcard is the beginnings of modernization in education, literature, music, transportation, media, and politics. This period covers the crumbling of the Ottoman Empire, rise of modern Arab States, and the oil boom. The color gray is for the rise of the most important commodity in the world, oil. Also, the colour gray signifies the pollution that has become part of our modern history. The image of Muhamad Ali meeting with French engineers signifies the starting point of modernization in the Middle East resulting in the building of oil refineries and the finding of the Arab League.
