Bata - Major archeWALLogical find

Always at the forefront of scientific breakthroughs in the world of ArcheWALLogy, Beirut/NTSC and its team of restoration experts are proud to announce you their major new find. Situated in the building near the bridge which gets you from Dora to Karantina (beneath the bridge in the alley taken to join Bourj Hammoud). The wall in question had a Bata ad on it from as far back as the 70s but its current condition is practically unreadable leaving little clues as to its original state.
However, after much research as to Bata's advertising from the era, including color codes and logos, we were able to trace back the original design which was now hidden under layers of paint. damaged by exposure to the elements and even has one stencil on it. With this new discovery, we are glad to be - once more - pioneers in the field of archeWALLogical excavation and restoration.
