Sudan from the Triumph Album 1945 perspective

A lot can happen within a country in 65 years and the Triumph pen sketch seems to almost apply to a completely different country from what I have read.   The visa finally arrived for Khartoum this week, the flight now booked for Sunday, so I will soon have a more up to date perspective.

Pre and post Iranian Revolution

An interesting contrast, the top one colliding circa 1945 with the Islamic Republic of Iran, the lower one using as the base image a stamp that is presumably just post revolution? Also, again joining together historic architecture and signs of modern progress.
