Picture from Iran: Girls' highschool, 1933


Girls' Highschool (دبیرستان دوشیزگان), Arak [2], 1933

Mrs. Paririkh Hashemi, who has provided us this picture (many thanks), explains:

A teacher names Sabieh Maleki (صبیه ملکی), wife of Khalil Maleki (خلیل ملکی), was very concerned that girls go to school. She constantly sought after girls of school age who did not attend school. Then she walked over to their families and persuaded them to send their daughters to school.

Footnote:
1. You may find other interesting "old pictures" in this blog 
2. 1933, Arak was a very small city with not more than 3 main streets. 
3. Usually, I publish such pictures only in my German language blog. But this photo inspired me so much that I made an exception.
