Snippets: The Bardawil family of Beirut.
Ordered by Mr. Philip Fouad Bardawil & delivered to him in Beirut. In 1945 the firm of Bardawil & Co was founded by Philip's father (Philip H) who specialised in construction machinery & equipment. Sadly Philip H died in 1948 and the firm was taken over by his son. Philip Fouad Bardawil (he was born in Manchester in 1928). Since then the firm has gone from strength to strength with the 3rd generation of Bardawil's joining the firm. Philip Fouad's mother - Zakieh Chaker Nassif was the daughter of Chaker Nassif an industrial merchant who at one stage owned the largest tannery in Mashghara and can be said that he started the leather industry in that region. Between WWI & WWII Chaker Nassif produced his own currency for his employees! Philip Fouad Bardawil later wrote a short autobiography entitled “Reflections of a Lebanese Businessman Living in the Gulf”. The name Bardawil is the Arabic form of Baldwin. named after Baldwin Ist. King of Jerusalem during the 11th Century. Philip Fouad Baradwil's brother-in-law was Zaki Nassif who is considered to be an important person within the music industry of Lebanon. during the 1950s he was a member of “The League of Five” a quintet which was modelled after five Russian composers – Balakirev. Cui. Mussorgsky. Borodin & Rimsky-Korsakov. During the early 1960s WVA48 travelled from Lebanon to USA via Turkey & Italy prior to being re-imported to the UK.
