A pair of original photos, dated June 20 and 22, 1917, represent temple ruins of Baalbek and reception room of a private palace in Damascus.
They were made during WWI by a Bulgarian lieutenant colonel Nikola Kableshkov (1868-?), who is signed in the corner of the Baalbek photograph. Kableshkov was a first cousin of the Bulgarian hero Todor Kableshkov. He was promoted to major general in 1920.
