The photos are working fine with me :confused:

Regarding the old buildings, yes quite a few are still around, but they are in bad condition.

Next up...

Mecca


1880 - Holy mosque


1889 - Mina during Hajj


1889 - Arafat during Hajj


1889 - Holy mosque


1907 - Holy Mosque


1907 - Kheif mosque


1903 - Ali's gate, holy mosque


1914 - The mahmal arriving from Cairo. The mahmal was a tradition in the past where the people of Egypt and Syria used to every year send a new covering for the Kaaba and a donation for the upkeep of the holy sites.


Maqam ibrahim , Holy mosque


Entrance to tawaf area, Holy mosque

to be continued (more photos from Mecca + other cities)

That's called HOTLINK! That site doesn't let other sites use its pictures with [IMG] tags or basic html codes.

So the best way is using Imageshack or other image hosting sites.
