تهران اندک صفائ هم که داشت،همان روز‌های قدیم بود، حالا اسلامیان تهران را مبدل به کوفه و نجف کرده‌اند و واویلا از این همه سیاهی که به تهران نمای خشونت و کثافت داده است .

1- The kids are playing with "ferfereh" on the street during the first 10 seconds.

2- Hassan-Abad square (s=22).

3- Shaabdolazim and Reza-Shah's tomb are shown during the final seconds.

4- Most cars were American, with a few W. German-made ones.

5- "Gaaris" were part of the traffic equation all over the city.

6- Teenager boys (probably students) were wearing suits.
