Sfax Through the Ages

The Changing Face of Sfax

Tracing the history of Sfax through a series of historical maps. These maps show how Sfax has developed since the years before the French occupation, and allow us to investigate and trace these changes in the modern city. Most of the maps included in the text are the author's own drawings, with links being provided for the original maps.
This is an investigative project, whereby the author has searched for maps relating to the changes in Sfax, and has used photographic resources - postcards, aerial photographs, etc. - to supplement the information provided by the maps.
