Streets

Sometimes the city may resemble Shanghai or Tokyo.

The architecture is as faceless is it can be. It’s greenery that adds charm to the view.

Typical Tehran street.

House numbering.

Tactile pavement for the blind.

Occasionally you come across some piece of dull anti-American propaganda.

Tehran dumpster.

A payphone.

There are many mailboxes in the streets.

The most common object in the streets is a donation box to collect money for the needy and disabled. They come in various forms.

Digital box in Tehran University of Technology.

Mini-box.

Locals say they have never seen anyone putting money there and they don't do that themselves.

Shops

Because of the sanctions, consumer culture in Iran is considerably outdated. Weird scraps are sold in the streets.

People stop near these shops with genuine interest.

At the same time in some of indistinguishable street shops selling, for instance, chandeliers, you may find goods of surprisingly high quality.

Each shopping street is devoted to a certain type of goods. One is exclusively for tires. Perfume, electronics are sold on the other ones. They send you to buy stuff not to a specific shop, but to a street.

Tires district.

Electronics.

Street trade.

A bookseller.

Each eatery craves a neon sign.
