Footnotes

  • The collection comprises a pictorial history of major events in Iran in the late Qajar and Pahlavi eras. There is a rich variety of subjects depicted, from architectural sites, some of which have disappeared, to everyday life in the bazaars, the royal court, feasts and portraits of members of the royal families, including Muzaffar al-Din Shah Qajar at a pigeon shoot at Contrexeville during his visit to France in 1906. Other cards include Reza Shah Pahlavi at the opening of Parliament in Tehran, Christmas Greetings from the Persian Gulf Command to Mrs Stanley Kellogg from her husband in 1944, and photographs of Muhammad Reza Shah Pahlavi with Princess Fawzia of Egypt and their daughter Princess Shahnaz. Many of the postcards retain their stamps, which date back to the last three Shahs.
