According to Fodor’s Travel, Place Mohamed V (Mohamed V Square) is Casablanca's version of London's Trafalgar Square, with an illuminated fountain, lots of pigeons, and a series of impressive buildings facing it. The fountain and the pigeons are on the other side of the tram in this photo. On our right, off the frame is the most impressive building, the courthouse, built in the 1920s. The building across the street partially blocked by the tram is the Centre Régional d'Investissement (Regional Investment Center). For you to avoid the confusion I had, I should note that Place Mohammed V was formerly called Place des Nations Unies and vice versa, and the old names still appear on some maps.
Mohamed V Meydanı
Fodor's Travel’a göre, Place Mohammed V (Mohamed V Meydanı) Kazablanka'da bir ışıklı çeşmesi, bir sürü güvercinleri, ve ona bakan bir dizi etkileyici binaları ile Londra'nın Trafalgar Meydanı’nın bir benzeridir. Çeşme ve güvercinler bu fotoğraftaki tramvayın, öbür tarafında bulunmaktadırlar. Sağımızda, karenin dışında meydanın en etkileyici binası, 1920'lerde inşa edilen adliye vardır. Karşıda kısmen tramvayla engellenen bina Centre Régional d'Investissement’dır (Bölgesel Yatırım Merkezi’dir). Size benim geçirdiğim karışıklığı önlemek için, ben not etmeliyim ki Place Mohammed V’e eskiden Place des Nations Unies ve tam tersi denirdi ve bu eski isimler hala bazı haritalarda görünür.

A perfect moment taken: the modern red train mingle well in the wide area around, and there is a great reflection on its glass-windows of the area we do not see on right side, there are trees and banchs for sure, and the red/white bus also shown.
Casablanca appears to be a town full of new buildings and many people dress casually.
Nice cityscape photo.
Enjoy your weekend,

Not really the kind of image we have in our minds of the white city of Casablanca, I think we are to much influenced by the old movie with Humphrey Bogart.
It looks quite modern around here with the futuristic tramway
have a great weekend

I guess this is the new tram line in Casablanca, modern tramcars. Nice street scene with perfect composition and light management, well done

fine composition in a panoramic frame with ample depth and space. You chose a very suitable composition to present this wide place, the perspectives work superbly and you've also provided for the sense of scale. One of the bets in this kind of urban settings is to deal with wires and you've managed them here effectively. I also like the colour management in moody lighting conditions, there are highlights that guide us through the scenery in an agreeable way. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely weekend,

You're capturing well this place by a good angle and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the wide Mohamed V Square and the smart/red/long tram which is running in the city, and the architecture of courthouse with long line. A good panoramic view!
