  • Misrak Added I like it, the girls are cute too
  • Angelo Added Great photos and they bring back so many memories.

    Some corrections to the captions:
    - No.5 is not Piassa but Haile Selassie Godana
    - No.8 is not Piassa but the old Churchill Avenue
    - The last photo is not Sodere but Ambo
  • dj Added That time, the city of Addis Ababa has only a few thousands residence ! Some times, pictures does not tell you that much ! I missed Piassa so much !
  • Gm tsegaye Added Nice picture
  • negash Added oh piassa was a clean and attractive city wake up i like piassa very much b/c i have beautiful memory
  • Mekbib Added A Nice collection, that gave me a glimpse of what Addis Looked like back in the 1960's.
  • sebeyo Added the city was so clean at that time but now yakkkkkkkkkkkkk
  • lena Added ክፋት የሌለበት ደጉ ዘመን
  • mussie Added Addis looked so clean and simple back then...nowadays the city is overpopulated, stinky and unorganized. i think this could be solved if there are other cities with mega institutions and infrastructures, that would attract people.And ofcourse the lack of public toilets is the main cause for the uncleanliness of the city...but still i lov addis, evbdy who was born here loves addis ababa.
  • abe Added wow amazing time addis still beautiful back then u can tell the students have innocent face.people live together with out any fear and hesitations.
