We need to invoke khan’s prerogative today and step away from the blog, on account of yet another brutal Wired deadline. In our absence, enjoy this archive of photos from the defunct League of Nations. The one above is of the Iranian delegation, circa 1920—we reckon that was the Golden Age of women’s fashion in Tehran, at least for the elites. We wonder what the lovely lady in the killer coat would think of the nation’s current attitude toward the female form.
Also worth checking out: the extremely unhappy bunch who comprised the League’s Opium and Social Questions Section. They don’t look like the sorts who might’ve been willing to ponder decriminalization.
