12:17 am - Tirana city center from the air

Previous Entry Share Next Entry



Not the clearest photo, but the original was very small. It's an aerial view of Tirana's center, primarily the east side, looking west toward Skenderbeg Square. This was the primary shopping area of communist Tirana, with MAPO state stores in the three apartment buildings in the right/center of the photo, and other state-owned shops (there were no other kind) along the street running up and down in the center of the photo. The cirle at the bottom is now a market area, but collective farm markets were not allowed in Albania until the last few years of communist rule. In those years, the area had artisan workshops. The photo is from Ylli (The Star), December 1988.

Why not try to put some photos of the modern Albania, to make a comparison.

nope, there are pix of modern albania ALL over the web. the point is to display images from a period that is neglected historically, particularly photos of it.

You could place a pic of one and the same thing from the past and from the present, to make a comparison.

Les montants de l’ [url=http://www.dopimmo.com]immobilier location[/url]ancien pourraient accuser une nouvelle reduction d’au moins 10% sur les douze prochains mois, suivi de nouveaux replis de 5% en 2010 et de 3% en 2011.
Aprcs un premier repli de 3,1% en 2008, les prix de l’ [url=http://www.dopimmo.com]immobilier[/url] ancien pourraient accuser une nouvelle chute d’au moins 10% sur l’annee suivante. Et la reduction devrait se poursuivre les annיes suivantes si l’on se fie aux scיnario les plus pessimistes avancיs par la Fnaim.
D’aprcs une יtude publiיe ce matin, la Fיdיration nationale des agences [url=http://www.dopimmo.com]immobilier[/url] rappelle en effet que la chute s’est fortement accיlיrיe en fin d’annיe… Aprcs avoir enregistrי un recul de 2,9% au cours du 3cme trimestre, les prix des logements anciens se sont effondrיs de prcs de 6,5% au cours du seul 4cme trimestre de 2008.
La baisse des taux enclenchיe fin 2008 ne suffira donc pas r renverser la tendance et r relancer la demande r court terme. Plusieurs raisons r cela. Depuis quelques mois, les agents immobiliers constatent que les nיgociations sont de plus en plus tendues entre vendeurs et acheteurs. « Surtout, malgrי des taux qui repassent en dessous de la barre des 5%, il est r craindre que les banques ne desserrent pas facilement leurs conditions de crיdit dans les mois r venir. Pour l’heure, les exigences d’apport personnels restent toujours trcs strictes : autour de 10 r 20% en moyenne », observe Renי Pallincourt, prיsident de la Fיdיration nationale des agences immobilieres
Face r ce constat, la Fnaim prיfcre donc parier sur une stabilisation du marchי r horizon 2012. « Une nouvelle baisse d’au moins 10% est encore nיcessaire pour rיtablir la solvabilitי des mיnages et permettre de relancer le marchי [url=http://www.dopimmo.com]immobilier achat[/url] » note Renי Pallincourt. Compte tenu de l’יvolution incertaine de la crise יconomique, la Fיdיration s’avance meme, pour la premicre fois, r יvoquer de nouvelles baisses de prix au cours des prochaines annיes. La Fnaim anticipe ainsi un repli de 5% en 2010 et de 3% en 2011.
