Central Map of Tehran
Date of Creation:
This is a 1961 Addass Sahab city plan or map of central Tehran, Iran. Composed almost entirely in English, streets throughout the area are labeled using Latin characters. A handful of locations around the city are identified on the map as well, including the Sahab Geographical and Drafting Institute, Air Force Headquarters, the Doshan-Tappeh Airport, Pahiavi Hospital, and the U. S. and Soviet Embassies. Red numbers incised in red circles mark 218 other locations, including book shops, travel agencies, hotels, museums, banks, government ministries and departments, and embassies. These correspond with indexes along the left and right borders.
