Vintage Albumen Photographs of Khyber Pass and Peshawar - 1890's
The Khyber Pass is a mountain pass that links Pakistan and Afghanistan. Peshāwar is 
the capital of the Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa and the administrative centre (but not the capital) 
for the Federally Administered Tribal Areas of Pakistan.

  1. A fascinating people; surely one can see that; and part of the world. And of course, a time in history. I do believe this, that God, and only God created ALL people and their origin. Everything else that follows, created by man, or caused by man is well, his/her doing alone; and only by the grace of God, have we lasted this long. As God knew it would be.

    Everyone should read Spencer Wells, A Journey of Man.

  2. Alot of desi people mixed in. Sad. They should just go back to their country
