For today's theme of Asia, I've chosen stamps from Persia/Iran.
Firstly these stamps commemorate the Royal wedding in March 1939 of the Crown Prince of Iran (who later became the Shah) to Princess Fawzia of Egypt (the sister of King Farouk).
Pathe News clip here.
This was Mohammed Reza's first marriage, but sadly the couple were not happy and divorced in November of 1948.
These stamps also show the Shah and date from the 1950s and 1960s.
Finally these earlier stamps are of his father, Reza Shah Pahlavi and date from the 1930s.
Thanks for visiting.
