Just an old beautiful picture from Sven Hedin

Title: ruin building, Identity:1021.III.0222 1021.III.0222 Location: Iran: Tabriz ,Persons:SvenHedin, Sven Anders, Sven Hedin Foundation

After publishing "Studiolum" wrote the following comment:
"This is the famous Blue Mosque next the bazaar, I mean what has been left of its facade (the entrance iwan) after the earthquake of 1779. Shortly before the Islamic Revolution it has been restored, which has done good to the iwan, but has deleted the details of the walls which can be still seen on this picture".
