These unique photos are from the book of the Swedish geographer, topographer, explorer, photographer, travel writer ,and illustrator of his own works, Sven Hedin .In the period of 1886-1934 years Sven Hedin made major expeditions to Central Asia and Tibet, thanks to which many historical monuments and landscapes have been described, many uncharted areas had been obliterated from the map of the world....During his travels he visited many places, described the people, their way of life and the events occurring in those regions...One of his next stops was an ancient Azerbaijani city, Nakhchivan,where he took the pictures of these girls on the camera ..It should be reminded that in Russian Empire Azerbaijani people were called Tatars.
