Vintage Footage of Shah Amanullah (1919-1929)


This is one of my favorite photos of Queen Soraya, who in the 1920s was the first Muslim woman to go unveiled. It was also one of the factors that lead to the uprising against her husband. Who would have thought an Afghan Flapper would cause such chaos! So here is the Helen of the Afghanistan Troy! She is totally fabulous!
