Change of plans. Instead of writing my bus book now, I am going to do the requisite background research first. I am going to go through every issue of National Geographic from 1975 to the present. Luckily, with a paper subscription, I get free online access to all the back issues.
This photo is from a January 1975 article about the Shah's Iran. The owner was educated at UCLA and headed the most prestigious hospital in Tehran. I'll be posting miscellaneous photos from the magazine as I plow through them.
