Vintage Fashion in Iran: Photographs from the first half of the twentieth century

Establishment of the Islamic Republic of Iran in 1979 meant that women were forced to wear Hijab and that it is strictly forbidden for women to be photographed without Hijab.

There was a time, following the military coup of 1920 when women were forced not to wear Hijab. Here are a few photographs from the first half of the twentieth century, the rise of industrial era in Iran.

You may find many more photos from that era in Portrait Photographs From Isfahan.
