Flying Carpets and Magic Lanterns…..Exotic Arabia

No genies in the bottle here, but almost!  These photographs were taken in the 1930’s for a series of books titled Lands and Peoples. They show a romantic, idealized version of the land and people.  arabia_1 arabia_2 arabia_3 arabia_4 arabia_5arabia_6arabia_7arabia8arabia-9arabia10arabia11arabia12These images are available in my Etsy shop.

About redbudart

I live in the beautiful Pacific Northwest, just outside of Portland, Oregon. My passions are cuisine, wine, horticulture, art, and vintage things, especially old books. I moved here in 2014, work a day job in finance, and spend the rest of my time working on my dream of living off the land, and teaching young people how to as well. Stop by my Etsy shops, where all proceeds are going towards the goal. Thank you and Namaste!
