Rare softback book "Views Around South Persia". Inside the book is a sub-title "A Selection of Camera Studies of native types and views around Southern Persia, including the Abadan Refinery of the Anglo-Persian Oil Co." See photo

There is no date (but the book must be pre-1935, as this is the year that the refinery changed it's name to reflect the the country's new name. The refinery opened in 1909. I can find no trace of this book on online bookstores. This is a rare and fascinating selection of old photographs.
