Iran - 1963

In 1962-1963 we lived in Iran; we were there on a Fulbright Grant. One of my husband's projects was to assemble a mobile science laboratory to take to rural areas. The Farsi on the back panel of the VW bus was supposed to say "Fulbright Science Laboratory," (the same thing as the English phrase) but when we asked various people to tell us what it actually said, the answer inevitably varied. So much for transliteration.

(I don't know where in Iran this photo was taken, or why the musicians were there. I dug it out when a friend who collects VW buses and just about anything related to them wanted me to send him any photos I might have from our travels.)
