Iran: The guy with the shisha ...

Searching for historic images about Iraq from 1870 - 1930 I saw someone offering a few negatives of images of Iran in the 1930ties. Nothing special, but one image I liked very much. An image of a guy sitting on a carpet under trees and enjoying a shisha.

Such long socks in the heat and it seems that he has a lot of freckles, but especially I like how he was fixed on the shisha. The other b/w images show mosques in Teheran and a woman with a tpyical pagboy cut sitting on a camel with a child. It looks so confusing on the one side, but I liked it.

Anyway I bought the negatives...
