Rasht Photos From Qajar, Pahlavi Eras

City Photo Museum in Tehran will show a collection of old photos from Rasht, capital of the northern Gilan Province.
A total of 39 historical photographs will remind visitors what the northern cultural city looked like during the Qajar (1785-1925) and Pahlavi (1925-1979) eras.
Titled ‘Old Photos of Rasht,’ the exhibition will open August 20 at 4 pm,  Gallery Info reported.
The photos will be on display for one month at the photo museum located at Bahar-Shiraz Park near 7-Tir Square. Visiting hours are 9 am to 5 pm. The museum is closed on Friday and open on Thursday from 9 am-1 pm.
Curator of the exhibition is photographer and expert in restoration of historical artifacts Kobra Alipour, 54. She was born in Rasht and has undertaken  extensive studies on photography in Gilan. One outcome of the study is a large private collection of historical photos.
The exhibition is organized on the occasion of World Photography Day, August 19.
World Photo Day is derived from the invention of ‘daguerreotype,’ a photographic process developed by Frenchmen Louis Daguerre and Joseph Nicephore Niepce in 1837. On August 19 the French government purchased the patent and announced the invention as a gift “free to the world.”
